Night canoe

Price: € 17,50 p.p.

Experience this unique experience, full moon canoeing through Utrecht, this year for the 27th year!

We offer the possibility to paddle in the evening with the full moon, with the setting sun through the beautiful canals and Singels of the city of Utrecht. On the way there will of course be a break at one of the many Utrecht cafes. The end of the trip is a true climax because you sail under all kinds of dark and low bridges. At the last bridge you would have to lie completely flat in the canoe to be able to pass underneath. An exciting final challenge.

  • If you have a voucher from Suprise-factory, you must make sure that it has not expired (you can extend the voucher at Suprise-factory)

  • Frequently Asked Questions:

  • How long are you on the road: the activity takes about 3 hours, from our rental location to the break it is 1 hour paddling, then you have a 30 to 45 minute break in the city center. After the break it is also paddling back for 1 hour. If you are coming from far away, it is recommended that you stay overnight in the area, should it unexpectedly become later and you can no longer use public transport.

  • Clothing: shoes that cannot easily slide off your feet, no slippers or boots, rain jacket against the splashing water, sweater (preferably made of wool or fleece, because then you stay warm when you are wet), warm spare clothing + towel, bag for any wet clothes, a string for your glasses.

  • Valuables: we have barrels and waterproof bags, but we prefer to leave your valuables and belongings that should not get wet at home.

  • If you are with 10 people or more, you can set a date yourself.
