The lively tour

This tour is the right choice for someone who likes adrenaline and is not afraid of a few athletics challenges.

The “Mittlere Trave” has been used economically for centuries, therefore the “Trave” is the fastest running water in the region and can be prone to congestion, but there’s plenty of backwaters where it is much quiter. But beware: Do not miss the exit at the “Sühlener Mühle” (Sühlener Mill) where you must cross land with your canoe, otherwise intense water contact is guaranteed.
The current is faster through the curves. And there are even more surprises on the tour.
This tour is the right choice for someone who likes to be active and isn’t afraid of a few athletic challenges.

From Herrenmühle the Trave can be used almost all year round by kayak or canoe. There is a red-green level on site. With a slight current you paddle through the typical slightly hilly landscape on the almost natural river. Two to three (depending on the water level) crossing overs (for the canoes) interrupt the journey. After 12.5 km you can finish the tour at Kloster Nütschau. Before Bad Oldesloe, the “Brenner Moor” with the salt marshes is a special feature. At the entrance to the city is the youth hostel Bad Oldesloe and the exit point. For guests who have booked a multi-day tour, there is an accommodation either in the house of the youth hostel or on the camping meadow.

With the passenger transport you can get to the entry point Herrenmühle by taking the Nordbahn (NEB) from Bad Oldesloe to Altengörs. From there you have to hike about 4 km on the hiking trail to the canoe entry point.
