I took the afternoon kayak tour and had a wonderful time! Emily set a nice relaxing pace, and we had time to stop and swim about midway through the paddle. The lake was lovely and calm, and we could not ask for better weather. Thanks...More

We took a pleasant kayak at a beautiful lake in Interlaken. It was a great experience that I couldn't forget. It's definitely worth experiencing in Interlaken.

At first we were doubtful it would be a worthwhile experience because the weather was less than ideal for being on the water. But once we got out there, it was amazing. Maria showed us amazing sights and gave very interesting commentary throughout. I highly...More
