We're the Swiss kayaking group, that aims to find something out on the water for everyone, for all ages, whether new to the sport or a seasoned white water kayaker. The group is now one season old and we're excited to see so many people interested and hope that everyone can take an active part in developing it into a great resource for people to get out kayaking.
We run a kayak school in Interlaken on the beautiful Lake Brienz and run a whole range of courses and tours exploring the fantastic corners of Switzerland and beyond, including many events in Zurich, giving you the foundations to develop as an independent paddler.
We then hope that with this soild foundation and safety knowledge that people can then get out and meetup together exploiting the different rental possibilities. People are welome to use the group and when aou have the necessary experience can become an event organiser yourselves.

He really has the best kit and the widest selection and comes highly recommended. Rene also rents equipment for those with Rescue training.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
