We had planned to hire a canoe on our recent trip to Saarburg but didn't get round to booking ahead. Luckily we phoned on the day and were told to just come along. As a family of four, with a little prior experience, we were happy to be sent off on the 10km Natuurtocht loop. Carola speaks excellent English and gave us a detailed brief of the route, as well as a map showing us where to go. Be aware that due to the presence of 'stuw' (weirs/locks) on the river, you have to wheel your canoe several hundred metres, and be able to lift it on and off a handy set of wheels. Daniel showed us how to do this and set us on our way. The scenery is wonderful, with vineyard covered slopes, wildlife (we saw kingfishers), and a few tame rapids which we enjoyed riding! The cost was very reasonable at 47 Euros, for three hours of fun on the river. There is a cafe next door to the canoe hire where you can relax afterwards. Would recommend for people of all abilities.

I agree with the other reviews. We booked early and wanted as many canoes as possible for our group. We managed 10 doubles, a triple, and 2 singles. There were no more available. It is summer and a warm day, so, understandable. If you want to be sure if getting a canoe, book in advance.
The staff were ALL friendly, helpful, speaking either German or English easily. They take time to ensure everyone has the equipment, and then explain the route.

There's also a snack bar with good basic snack options, including home baked cakes. Plus a wide variety of drinks, including radlers (isotonic 0% alcohol) and Viez (regional cider). All at affordable prices.
We only did the easy short circular route, which was fun. I would easily go back and do one of the other options.

Great experience, beautiful nature and friendly and easy-going owners renting the canoes/kayaks. It´s good to call/ send an email a couple of days in advance to make sure you get your canoe, as the demand is high, especially in summer or early autumn. There are several routes one can take, so it is possible to canoe there several times without getting bored. The water is relatively quiet, with occasional waves when cargo ships or motor boats pass, which makes the experience all the more exciting. The company provides also life vests and a water-proof bag for your belongings (all included in the price). Try it!

We had the most amazing time with Carola and Daniel from the kayak hire place in Schoden called Kanu SaarFari. Being a kayak tour operator myself it was refreshing to see the detail and care they gave on the 4 tours we did with them over the last few weeks. Highly recommendable could not find a better place and more expertise to hire your kayaks from. We will do some major tours with them next year. Thank you Carola and Daniel. Below a link to the Harte Tour we done on July the 20/2015
