Canadier & Bathing Fun Tour on the Tauber River

The event will only take place if 3 seats in my car are booked. I would appreciate other drivers to take passengers as soon as my car is full.


Here is my fourth canoe trip for 2018.

Weather forecast is 21 degrees so still quite pleasant for a boat trip.

Cost: 30 euros

Participation will be by prior money transfer of 30 euros to my bank account.

This canoe day tour will take us 16 km from Dittigheim to Niklashausen. In order to cool down we can stop on our way and have a bath. Average time to get to Distelhausen is 5 hours but it can also take 7 if we are not in a hurry. After arrivel in Niklashausen we will be brought back to our cars in Dittigheim.

A life jacket per person will be provided and also a watertight barrel per boat for your backpacks. You don’t have to wear the jacket if you are over 18 but it is nice and cosy to sit on. ???? For NON-SWIMMERS, as said you get a life-jacket and also on these kind of rivers water is almost never deeper than 1 m.

Starting times are flexible which means that you can start at any time you want. You could arrive an hour or two later and still catch up with the rest.
