Description

The winter months offer some of the most breathtaking views of Lake Brienz. From your kayak, you are surrounded by snow covered mountains which reflect beautifully on the mirror-like water. Winter is the time of year where we truly have the lake to ourselves and whatever the weather you are guaranteed to have an unforgettable experience. Escape the crowded ski pistes for a while and join us in this peaceful and magical environment.

We provide Palm`s top of the range Bora dry suits and boots to keep us dry and hard-earned cups of tea to warm us up after our paddle.
We start our tour at the Beach and Hightide base in Bönigen. We paddle to the north shore and discover the beautiful cliffs, the old castle of Ringgenberg and the hidden beaches along the lake. Afterwards we will cross the Brienzer Lake in the direction to Iseltwald. We paddle round the Schnäggeninseli of Iseltwald with our kayaks and enjoy a well-deserved tea break in the wonderful village of Iseltwald. On the way back we also cross fascinating rocks. As soon as we will cross the river of the Lütschine we will know it is not far to the beach of the Strandbad.
We also offer both group tours and private sessions (tours & coaching) for a tailor made trip out on the lake.

Our Coaching Philosophie

Individuelles Seekajak Coaching ist unser Herzensangelegenheit. Wir holen dich dort ab, wo du bist und begleiten dich bei dem, was du erreichen möchtest.

Durch unsere mehrjährige Erfahrung auf dem Meer verstehen wir, was das Seekajak Fahren wirklich ausmacht und sind passioniert, dieses Wissen auf eine möglichst effektive und nachhaltige Art und Weise weiterzugeben. 

Lerne Seekajak Basics auf dem See, der sich super eignet um Sicherheit für die ersten eigenen Paddelabenteuer zu gewinnen oder buche einen Finetuning Kurs, der dir wichtiges Werkzeug mitgibt, um auch auf dem Fluss oder sogar auf dem offenen Meer paddeln zu können. Egal, ob kurze Trips auf dem See in deiner Nähe oder Langstrecken und  Expeditionen, die Planung von Trips auf dem Meer oder das spielerische Paddeln mit dem Seekajak zwischen Felsen und in den Wellen. Wir begleiten dich dabei!

Alle unsere Coaches “durchpaddelten” mehrere Seekajak – Qualifikationen auf dem Meer und teilen nicht nur die Leidenschaft für den Sport, sondern auch für inspirierendes Coaching. “We make you feel the learning” ist unsere Philosophie.

Reviews

Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value

As usual, had a great time with Hightide. They never disappoint with their professionalism, responsiveness to the needs of paddlers and they are always good for a laugh. Highly recommended!

Simon Parker

Friendly staff, professional attitude

As a complete stranger to kayaking I did not expect this amount of progress I made in the course of a single day, the topics were carefully selected and built on top of each other, the instructor was easy going and relaxed, without making any compromises to safety.

Miklos

Private Coaching (3 hours)

Excellent coaching session where I quickly enhanced my technique of turning, apprehend safely a rapid u-turn, optimize my move forward and learn how use the minimum of energy. It is exactly the type of coaching session that I was expecting, in order to get more familiar with my boat and the water element. On the top of that, conditions were perfect and the scenery of the lake is simply magical. Highly recommended.
