We were a group of 15 on a team building exercise. We were all given the blue kayak`s. Mostly doubles with 1 single. There was no safety advice given only the description on the pamphlet which seemed strange did they assume everyone new what to do if to capsize (yes this happen). We were expected to just take the kayaks... More

Hello, We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your trip down the river. The Lesse is a calm river with a level suitable for beginners, so no training is forseen. Most customers discover how to navigate correctly on the first kilometers of the course and find the experience enjoyable. Life jackets are available and free of charge... More

We booked the shorter kayaking experience for my daughters birthday. It was a fun day out which we all enjoyed. The kayaks were good and the staff helpful. Beware, you do get wet, do make sure you only take essentials with you and keep phones, keys and wallets in the buckets that are provided. I liked the fact that at... More

Very well organised. We did the 12km route. A bus takes you from the car park to the start. You get a ticket from a booth at the beginning of the route, collect an airtight bucket and a paddle. Stand in a line and a canoe is pushed along a kind of conveyer belt. You jump in and get pushed... More

Went there yesterday. Paid for kayak tickets waited over an hour at bus stop for the bus. We eventually went to the office to get our money back. we did not even receive an apology. The girl at the office said "Its not my fault" very poor customer service and lack of training by the management of the staff

The descent of the Lesse is a lot of fun and does not require a lot of physical strength as the small current helps you to move along. The staff of Dinant Evasion is very helpful. I recommend booking a kayak trip with them. Very easy to do everything by train. You can buy a B day trip in a... More

€27 for a "super comfy" kayak with light weight paddles. We were out for about 4 hours, the bus drops you off at the start where you go down a "Shute" into the river La Lesse. We stopped and had a picnic approx half way with chateau Waltzin in the background. Stunning scenery and very relaxing. A few little white... More

We were fortunate to have a sunny day, that make the whole kayak experience even better!!! The river is really cool with amazing views along the ride! Definitely something that everyone should do when in Belgium. Also, it wasn't that expensive( 19 euro for 12km-all included). We made a booking online, but actually going there without one is also okay!

Had a very nice afternoon out on the river with my girlfriend and took in some beautiful views of Walzin castle as you kayak past the edge of it. Was a relatively hectic day on the river as there seemed to be numerous school trips there, but once we had got past their end point, then it was tranquil and... More

Had a relaxing afternoon with two sons on the shorter route. Took the more comfortable canoes with plastic paddles. Only critcism was that we were told that the bus upstream would leave at 1:30. It only left at 2:30 and we could have taken the train instead at 1:55 and avoided the wait to get our boats.

We went canoeing for the first time with this company, the ones with the red and blue canoes. It was not a very bright day, so it was not very busy at the start site. We were brought by bus, not by train, unfortunately. We do not know if that is common at present, but the view from the train... More
