River cruises
Our river cruise season runs from each year from March 15th to December 1st. Our passenger ship ‘the Queen of the Vecht Valley’ departs from the picturesque town of Ommen and brings you to a historic river lock at Vilsteren. In July and August we pass through the lock each Thursday and take the cruise a bit further to the neighbouring town of Dalfsen, seeing the natural splendour of the Overijssel environment one the way. Our boat is easily accessible for the physically impaired and has all necessary amenities aboard.

Regge Descent by Canoe
In the morning we take you by minivan to a sluice in the Regge, a side river of the Vecht. After instructions you descent the Regge for thirteen kilometres before you reach the Vecht just downstream of Ommen. Because the Regge basin is a protected area, motorized boats are not allowed to enter the river. This enables you to take in all the natural beauty in utter silence. Along the way there are plenty of places where you can take a break to rest your arms and have a picnic on the riverside.

Our aluminium canoes have great stability. They are suitable for three adults or two adults and two children. We also rent out kayaks for the Regge Descent. It is required to book in advance.

€ 29,50 for 2 persons + € 3,75 for each extra person per canoe.
