What people are saying about Canton Bern

The experience of paddling across the beautiful, calm Lake Brienz with the group and kayak guide Chris in the morning is unique. Well managed, with the best care and a break on the lake. It was our first kayak tour. We enjoyed it very much and felt very comfortable and safe with Chris as our kayak guide. Equipment was in good condition and comfortable.

We so enjoyed this tour! Had some wonderful cheese, chocolate and wine while learning about some of the history of Lucerne. We finished the tour with a walk up to the castle, which is something we wouldn’t have found on our own and has the best view we’ve yet found in Lucerne — it’s truly incredible! Would definitely recommend!

This experience was absolutely amazing!! Beautiful views of the lake and surrounding mountains. We missed our stop on the way here, but our guide and fellow kayakers waited for us to arrive, a very friendly place. If you ever get too hot in the sun, just grab a handful of glacier water and drink straight from the lake!

Really fun activity! Karel was extremely nice and helpful - highly recommended!

wonderful walking tour. excellent tour guide. a must when in Lucerne
