Would you like to have a nice day out, going outside and enjoying nature? Then is for instance a canoeing tour on “de Dommel” the unique day out for you! Escaping from the daily grind and busy society for a while and paddling over the river “de Dommel” in the most relaxing way. This is also ideal for a day out during a vacation!

From Borkel en Schaft you will make a beautiful canoeing tour of 8 kilometres back to Valkenswaard in about 2 hours. This tour is suitable for people of all ages. 8 kilometres is a nice distance for a morning or an afternoon out. After about 20 minutes of canoeing down ‘De Dommel’ you will come across restaurant ‘De Zwaan’ where you can rest for a while, while enjoying some food and drinks. When you continue your tour you will soon reach natural area ‘De Malpie’; beautiful surroundings with great scenery. If you’re lucky you will see cows, which are seeking refreshment at the water, up close. After canoeing for about an hour and a half you will come across a picnic area. The finish of this tour is at ‘De Venbergse Watermolen’ in Valkenswaard at a 300m distance from ‘t Boothuys.
