Our top recommendations for water sport lovers

Water sports enthusiasts flock to Germany’s Lake Muritz, a network of more than 1,000 lakes where dinghies, windsurfers, canoes and kayaks can be hired. The crystal-clear waters are also great for dropping the anchor and taking a dip! Other top water sports destinations include Douelle on the River Lot, where canoeing and kayaking are popular or Sneek in Holland, home to a fantastic water sports centre. You can hire a small boat at a number of other stops, and in other regions as well!

Rideau Canal, Canada

Expansive lakes and crystal clear waters make Canada the perfect playground for water sports aficionados. Whether it is full-throttle jet skiing or slowing the pace and gently paddling the day away in a traditional Canadian canoe, head to Canada's Rideau Lakes and find something for everyone.

Lot, France

The lazy River Lot is a perfect place to hire canoes to explore the banks which can be hired by the hour at many locations. It is possible at certain hire centres to be transported up river and take your time drifting back downstream with the current. Waterskiing is possible very near to Cahors for beginners or experienced skiers. They also have the ride on ringo for children and are fully equipped with life vests.

Holland & Friesland, Netherlands

Friesland in northern Holland is one of the biggest areas of inland lakes in Europe. From our base in Woudsend, head for the coast to Stavoren, the oldest city of Friesland, which offers lots of seaside fun and is a hugely popular water sports town. Further north in Workum, on the banks of Lake Ijsse, you can also go kite surfing. Don’t forget to head to Sneek in August for Sneek Week, where the town’s reputation as the ‘capital of boating’ really comes to life.
