Great ideas for your very special
company outing in the Lahntal.
Why not combine the enjoyable with the useful at your next company outing? Team building with fun and action, not possible? Yes, it is with us! Canoeing is an activity, that will only work as a team and this is the beauty and also the challenge of it. You can choose if you like to race each other or if you rather take it easy and enjoy nature's plenty. One thing is for certain, you will have a lot of fun on the water.
For the landsmen in your company, we can offer other activities, while the rest is canoeing on the river. Alternatively or additionally, they can cycle, hike or enjoy a city tour. Surprise the participants of your work outing with a rich and tasty picnic, with packed lunches or a rustic pirate's BBQ. On request we can also organise a BBQ buffet or a barn party to give this day a very special ending, where everybody can get together in a relaxed atmosphere and look back on the day's events. You like to stay a night? No Problem, due to our more than 30 years of experience, we can help you with that as well. Book a night in a charming country inn, a stylish city hotel or for the real thing in one of our original Indian tipi tents in Solms-Schohleck or Runkel.
Our newest addition is the canoe and bike station in Wetzlar directly next to the Paulaner Biergarten, where you can end your tour, too. Enjoy Bavarian beer culture directly at the Lahn in one of the most beautiful towns of the Lahntal.
