Lahntours-Aktivreisen GmbH is a „Qualitätsmanagement Wassertourismus Kanu“ certified operator through the German Tourism Association. We operate under the guidelines of this quality label in the canoe tourism segment. The label is financially supported by the Federal Ministry of Economy and Technology and contributes with its quality criteria to a more professional and quality-orientated canoe tourism in all of Germany. Part of this is of course the preservation and protection of the water and river landscapes involved.
Lahntours-Aktivreisen GmbH was awarded with the quality and environment label of the Federal Canoe Association. We were one of the first operators in Germany who received the award due to our high quality and customer safety standards as well as for our effort to protect the habitat of the river landscape. Both, the Federal Environment Ministry and the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation, support this label, which is now part of ''Viabono'', another label for environmentally friendly and quality-orientated tourism.
Lahntours is an active member of the Federal Canoe Association. This association is promoting a close to nature canoe tourism and represents the interests of canoe tourists. It is their goal to harmonise the canoe tourism and the nature preservation so that future generations can enjoy a healthy environment as well.
Lahntours is an active member of the Federal Association of Water Sports. Since 1961, the association is a competent partner for the water sports industry and a strong community that can influence politics and public authorities. The political commitment of the association goes far beyond the nation, because water sports is an international topic. Working in many international committees ensures that German water sports interests are heard and discussed worldwide.
Lahntours cooperates with the regional tourism association: Lahntal Tourismus Verband e.V. The Lahntal once being a hidden treasure only a few people knew about becomes more and more a successful tourism region with a well developed infrastructure and a great range of offered activities.
Lahntours is an apprenticing company of the chamber of commerce. We think of the future and see it as our duty to train young people for the following professions: management assistant for tourism and leisure, management assistant for tourism, travel agent and office manager.

Official project of the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development.
At the round table of the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development the German national comity awarded a project, which we are involved with, to be an official project of the UN decade. The declared goal of the the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development is to establish an economical, ecological and socially sustainable development in all areas of the education system for the world population. International lead agency of the decade is the UNESCO. In Germany the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development is under the patronage of the federal president of the Federal Republic of Germany. Responsible for its coordination is a national comity under the leadership of Prof. Dr. Gerhard de Haan, educationalist at the Freie Universität Berlin which was formed by the German UNESCO commission. To learn sustainability should become a matter of course for everybody in the education system. The awarded projects are an example for innovative and broadly effective implementations of the decade. Their award intents to spread the goals of the decade widely across Germany. This supported by the German Federal Environmental Foundation (Deutschen Bundesstiftung Umwelt), Friends of the Earth Germany (Bund für Umwelt und Naturschutz Deutschlands) and the Federal Canoe Association (Bundesvereinigung Kanutouristik e.V) initiative, to which Lahntours-Aktivreisen contributes as well, has the goal to develop nature experiences and environmental education programs especially for children and youth groups from educational weaker backgrounds.
