Due to the high demand last few years, we are offering for the first time two options for kayak rentals: Venture, Prijon, Seabird or P&H. The price of 160,00 € is reserved for Venture, Prijon, or Seabird kayaks. The rentals are offered on a first-come first-served basis so if you want a specific brand please be fast and let us know when you book the camp.
The price for P&H kayaks will be higher because we have to transport them from further location. The accurate price for the P&H kayaks can be calculated when we know the number of people who wish to rent them.
The kayak that you choose will be yours for the whole camp so please be mindful if you want to use a specific brand.
