Managed and led by Hightide Kayak School and SUP Fit&Fun in Bönigen, the Paddle Trail is a partnership of 23 activities, attractions, hotels and restaurants around the lake. Together we aim to promote the region as an unparalleled outdoor destination combining nature, sport with local attractions, fine dining and comfortable accommodation.

Book 20th of May on your calendar and be ready to have some fun in the first Paddle Trail Festival. This splashy and fun event is the official Paddle Trail opening and a kick off for paddle sports season on lake Brienz. Come and have a go with a kayak or a stand up paddle board, testing is for free. Starting point is at Hightide Kayak School in Bönigen. If you’ve paddled more than once you might want to participate in Lake Brienz Challenge. Visit as many of our Paddle Trail partners on your own or rental kayak around the lake. Just by collecting their visit cards you might win one of the fabulous prizes. You can start from any village you wish, just make sure you are back in Bönigen by 4pm.

The aim of the day is also to break a record and have more kayaks, canoes and SUP-boards on the lake than ever before. Group photo will be taken at 4pm. Afterwards the fun continues in Hotel Oberländerhof with good food, music and great vibes.
