Guided canoe tours

Experience the nature around Gerdau and Ilmenau together with an experienced guide

Guided canoe tours

The Uhlenköper camp regularly organizes guided canoe tours. These are usually held on Thursdays (also possible on other days) and vary depending on demand between the tours described below. Experienced guides will accompany you throughout the journey. From them you will learn the technique of paddling, the proper handling of animals and plants of the river and all sorts of interesting facts about the waters. All tours are suitable for pleasure paddling for the whole family and also for beginners.

Before each tour, there is a briefing where you can trust the boat and the water. We are happy to answer your questions about the process, paddling technique and safety.

Depending on your tour, paddle with a guide on the Ilmenau or the Gerdau:

  • Meeting by appointment at the Uhlenköper-Camp Uelzen-Westerweyhe or at the pre-determined entry point
  • admission
  • Break with picnic
  • Highlights (depending on the tour): Elbe-Seitenkanal, Klein Bünstorfer Heath, Ratsteich
  • Arrival at the agreed exit point

While there is a minimum of 10 people for guided tours on your preferred dates, you can join the Thursday tour as a single or family trip. Please register in time (at the latest on wednesdays).
