When you arrive with your reservation you have to wait in line. When you get your ticket you can take a train/bus to starting point where you have to AGAIN wait in line for the tickets for boats. Then you wait in line for the paddles and last are the boats. I was barely sitting in my boat when I... More

Hi, What an unfriendly experience you had. We are sad to read comment like yours. Maybe isn't it clear enough that we don't provide any instructor for this activity. Kayaking on river Lesse is likely to be easy enough, even for beginners. Yes indeed there are 4 queues before boarding in the kayak, we are doing our best to make... More

We made a reservation to kayak on a Saturday and everything went pretty smooth. Paid and picked up our tickets at the entrance and used the bus to go to the start. On the route we stopped for a break, there were different options for this. At the finish the staff was again efficient and helpful when we had to... More

I went there yesterday with my girlfriend and two friends. It was a sunny and warm day and a public holiday in Belgium. The bus that took us to the starting point in Hoyet was packed to the point where all seats were taken and a number of people, including the four of us, had to stand up in the... More

Dear, It is really sad to read the bad memories you kept from you day on the river Lesse. Indeed when the weather is warm and sunny there is a lot of people who want to get some freshness. We made our best to avoid alcohol in de kayaks, and there are policemen at some places along the river to... More

It was a lovely river and great scenery. There was only one other kayak on the river when we were there. I don't know when 'high season' might be but this surely wasn't it the first week of July. The help was very friendly but there isn't much for them to actually do. We did the shorter trek and think... More

Great staff team taking you through some super climbing challenges in an amazing setting. Something for all abilities. You must try the big zip death slide and the pendulum is superb!

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.
