• Recreational activities - activities on the water, in nature

It’s your Canada vacation – Finally.

Activities without animation. Do it yourself.

We don’t need a look at the magic ball, we don’t need animators.

Canada vacation – there is so much you can do here.

The water and the landscape offer so many possibilities.

Canoeing in the bay is a simple sport that you can quickly learn.

The water here is often very calm. Janvrin’s Point is not far – nice corner.

Pack a small picnic basket – and off you go.

Experienced water sports enthusiasts take the kayak.

Standup paddling – no problem either. If you have never been on a SUP board,

– here he can learn it without being laughed at.

Very popular is the hike in the late afternoon to Janvrin’s Point, about 4.4 km long (one route). Pack a few drinks and wait for the sunset. Don’t forget the camera – just perfect.

Cycling ? No problem. It often goes slightly uphill, but – hui – also downhill again. Mountain bikes are available for rent in the Vipilodge.

Sparkling wine breakfast or bonfire romance ?

Even fishing equipment can be found in the boathouse. Who wants to fish: at the bridge to Janvrin’s Island there should be plenty of fish.

The Canadians often sit on the bridge railing and fish … fresh fish.

Or just hike along the waterfront of the Vipilodge. Let’s see who discovers the two swings.

By the way: a swing was built in 2018 especially for the TV team of Dirk Steffens (Terra-X).

Adults can still behave like small children. On holiday, this doesn’t bother anyone !

Or how about camping ? – You are planning an excursion, e.g. to the Cabot Trail ? Just stay in the tent again. The campgrounds cost around 30,- to 35 CAN, even wild camping is allowed.

Who dares ?

A small tent equipment with table and chairs, gas cooker and sleeping bag can be rented for small money. The alternative to the 200,- en the lodge on the trail.

We would be collecting it with driftwood on the beach ? – Stack up at the jetty and then we meet in the evening for the campfire romance.

When the occasion is given: the champagne breakfast in the morning on the jetty, at sunrise …

… or the thing with the full moon ! A wonderful experience.

We are sure that you will come up with more.

And then you realize – the holiday was once again too short. Well then – Until next time!
