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

In Dinant city they gave boat without power and when you are in the midle of the river without boat power they say that is your fault and keep your money or will call police. Really bad service!

I am starting to think that I am not a good kayaker, since this is my second time in a tandem kayak recently, and my second time struggling greatly. Most people around me seemed to have a great time. The river was cool and fairly calm (2 very small waterfalls to go over). The woods were lovely. I thought this... More

Dear, Thank you for your nice compliments about our landscape and beauties to see during canoëing. Anyway, kayaking is not so easy, that's why we recommend the beginners to rent double seater kayaks in place of single one. The lifejackets are not compulsory for the adults, only for the children Under 12. You did right to ask for getting one.... More

My 16 y.o. niece and I enjoyed the Kayaking experience a lot. It is really beautiful, fun, safe ( the river has a depth average 1m ) and entertaining. I used Kayak lebert - the Kayak yellow, and they were comfortable and the service was good. Advice: take some snack or food to eat as you will make a break... More

Slowly moving down the Lesse river is quite nice. But very crowded and quite noisy on weekend days. You constantly hear other kayakers far in front and behind you. Of course, when you rent a kayak the idea is you do the kayaking. However, as an experienced user of various types of water sports equipment, it amused and somewhat amazed... More

We had a nice time kayaking in the midst of the Ardennes forest. Everything was very well organized, so I would certainly recommend it.

I really enjoyed kayaking: it's great if you are looking for a funny and a pleasant activity. There are two possibilities for the descent. The long one (21km) takes about 5 hours and isn't recommended for families with children. It's too long and too tiring for them. The shorter trip (12km) lasts about 3 hours. For me (I have little...

No lifejackets, no help, no directions, no safety brief, no idea. Almost drowned. Saved only by adrenaline. Ignore the propaganda; only do if you have experience. This is not for beginners; whatever the website tells you. This address here on tripadvisor, despite the picture showing red kayaks is for the Blue kayaks (les kayaks bleus) and they are a mess....
