We had a wonderful kayaking trip with Hightide!

Our guide was Karel who was incredible- very helpful (especially with beginners) and knowledgeable about the lake and the region. The entire staff was friendly and welcoming, and we cannot thank Karel enough for making our kayaking experience fantastic as well as giving us great recommendations for things to do in the area afterwards. We had an amazing time and would absolutely recommend Hightide’s services to all who visit! Also- the photos taken during the trip came out great!

This was our best experience during our 4 days stay in the Interlaken area!

The scenery was stunning, the weather was splendid and the turquoise waters of lake Brienz were magically beautiful. Maria, our guide, not only demonstrated professionalism and organizational skills but also showed willingness to accommodate specific requests such as a swimming break. She took loads of pictures of the group and each of us and posted them in a Dropbox a couple of hours later. Maria has, in addition, a very sociable and pleasant way of interacting with the group making this tour enjoyable and memorable for all of us.

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!

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.

Excellent tour

Sean was great, with a good explanation, pace and great chat. We were lucky with the weather that we had the lake to ourselves. We also stayed for a lunch and a drink on their terrasse which was also really good. Highly recommend.

Highlight of Interlaken trip

Amazing experience, our highlight from visiting Interlaken. Suitable for non-swimmers. They have a nice cafe/restaurant also onsite to have food after the tour.

Highly recommended!

Spent great time with Ben! Even though it was raining, the weather didn’t spoil any experience and the whole trip exceeded our expectations! Our guide Ben was extremely nice, helpful, professional and hospitable! Moreover, they provided us with all equipment including raining coats and so on. In the end we’ve got the photos immediately 🙂

Kayak for the first time… and for sure not the last!!!

We had a really nice experience even despite the weather (it was windy and a bit rainy). We were provided with all the necessary equipment and Silvana was really kind and able to adjust to our level and to the weather conditions. Lake Brienz is simply beautiful and observing it from the water, surrounded by nature and in total silence is something to try.

Marvellous experience!

Sean was excellent, providing great guidance and support!!! We even made a short stop for swimming, which was totally refreshing! I will definitely go back again!!!!

I could not have been happier

I’ve been to a half-day tour in English, and as somebody with zero kayaking experience before I could not have been happier with the outcome 🙂 I really liked the detailed preparation instructions sent by the school. On the day of the tour we were offered wet suits to be more comfy while swimming in the fresh waters of the lake, and our guide was very attentive and helpful when we faced any issues – be it correction of the rowing technique or adjusting the boat seat.

One of the best memories I’ll ever have

If I could give it higher than 5 stars I would!! We absolutely enjoyed every minute of it & Karel & Maria were amazing tour guides with buzzing personalities. It’s an experience you’ll never forget. They even take photos for you & brought cookies to the middle of the lake!!…

Absolutely incredible location-MUST SEE

Karel was a great guide and even brought us a snack! He was nice and professional. The equipment was clean and perfect. Everything was so easy and went smoothly. The experience was unforgettable and was really worth it.

11/10 Would Recommend

Absolutely amazing experience! Karel and Jolien were so fun and knowledgeable! The views were breathtaking and the photos we received at the end definitely captured the beauty! We were able to take a dip in the lake which was a tad chilly but also refreshing during the sunny day! The homemade cookies Jolien baked for us were a pleasant treat and we enjoyed them while playfully quizzing Karel on the heights of each peak. 11/10 would recommend! Definitely coming back in the wintertime to see the different landscape! #boatarms
