The river has a constant current which propels you forward without having to paddle.

Canoe expedtion camp | canoeing in a beautiful area

You're certain to find this camp very exciting. You are taught the most important canoe techniques on the pond at Markant Outdoorcentrum which will make you feel a lot more confident about your canoe skills. After that follows the briefing by the canoe instructor to prepare you for the canoe expedition. Early Monday morning we'll be on our way to the river Lippe, our starting point for the expedition. We cover the trip in mostly open canoes which allows us sufficient room to take the luggage on board.

The river Lippe is a perfect canoe river which is traversed by many a canoe lover. On the route along the banks there are a number of campsites where we can pitch our tents. We buy our food every day and cook on the burners that we bring along. In the evenings we make a campfire and have a good chat.

On Friday you'll be able to share your adventures with your canoeing friends and other campers at the Outdoorcentrum where we have a nice barbecue together. 

Where are you staying

Where will you be staying during this canoe camp?

During the canoe expedition you are staying overnight on camping spots along the water front. These are small camping sites and/or small, simple canoe camping spots. The facilities at these sites range from standard camping accommodation to very basic amenities. After we arrive at the campsite, we'll go shopping for our evening meal and snacks and the following morning's breakfast. The crew has a daily budget for the meals.

On friday the canoe expedition is back again at base camp where you'll stay in the group accommodation campsite of Markant Outdoorcentrum in group tents of 4 to no more than 8 persons with the other Summer Campers. Naturally, the campfire is a standard feature for sharing the adventures of the day with the other Summer Campers of your age. A great moment to share your canoe expedition adventures with everybody around the fire.

At base camp breakfast, lunch and the evening meals are served from the restaurant facilities on the premises as well as movie night and the party evening which also take place here.
