Build your own canoe at Kanubau Nord

Have you always wanted to build your own canoe? Our canoe building courses make it possible!

In four days you can build your own canoe. Our courses are suitable for individuals as well as for small groups. You don't need any experience in wood craft, as the procedures are very simple. Feel free to bring friends or family as helpers and make a vacation out of it. It costs nothing extra.

You can choose 4 different types of canoes

  • Canoe Aal

    Based on the dugout canoes used for thousands of years, this is a very light, slender flat-bottomed canoe. It is very maneuverable, therefore ideal for winding streams and rivers, but even suitable on lakes.

  • Canoe Hecht

    The classic, a typical "Indian canoe", also called "Canadian". Elegant, very light, super easy to paddle. Suitable for rivers and lakes.

  • Canoe Lachs

    A canoe that has proven itself even on large lakes in strong winds with quite a bit of swell. Somewhat higher built than the "Hecht" and equipped with a continuous keel bar, it can also be sailed.

  • Canoe Schwertfisch

    An elegant, fast canoe with a flat bottom and a large, continuous keel bar, suitable for long distances on lakes or rivers, but also for a summer Sunday outing with a picnic basket and your loved ones. It is also good for sailing.
