Danube Kayak Adventure

In this tour you will have the opportunity to experience kayaking through diverse Danube's wildlife, in this 1 day tour

When the sun drops its hot breath on the Belgrade asphalt and force us to take shelter under parasols and air conditioners, we know a place near the city that is a perfect remedy for this kind of summer worries.

We’ll take you to a kayak adventure, just north of Belgrade. In this tour you’ll have the opportunity to experience the living world populating the Danube; countless birds, hidden bays and even sandy beaches the existence of which only a handful are aware of. No previous kayaking experience is necessary for you to enjoy this tour, and our licensed instructors will offer you all the help you’ll need.

Arriving at the location, we land on the banks of the Danube river. And after a short training and safety explanation from the instructor, we start our kayaking adventure.

In front of us, Danube, wide and fast, all to ourselves. We’ll take a relaxed pace, gliding throughout the river surface, just enjoying our time on the water. We’ll take a break on the Danube’s biggest island to cool off, bathing in the Danube and exploring the island. After that, the river pulls us downstream, and our kayaking trip continues.

After over 10 kilometers of pedaling, we land on a local beach, were we’ll change our clothes and enter our transport that awaits us. He’ll take us to one of many famous fish restaurants by the river, there we’ll enjoy their famous freshly prepared fish soup and other fish specialties.

Tired, but happy we return to Belgrade.
