When you think of going to Europe for a vacation and seeing as much as you can see, the first thing you think of is more than likely not “places to go kayaking in Europe”. Kayaking around Europe is not the most popular way to see the beautiful sights, but if you do decide to go, you certainly will not be sorry and you will see things that most other tourists never have a chance to see. Below is a list of the best places to go kayaking in Europe.

1.) Southern French Alps, France

France has some of the best white water adventures you can go on, and Southern France takes the cake as to where the best rapids are for kayaking. If you are looking for a little bit of adventure, rivers like the Bonne, Guil, Durance, Souloise, and Ubaye, all offer waters that are challenging for kayakers. The rapids are fast, so these rivers are best suited for only experienced kayakers that are up for experiencing a different river every day and taking on the challenge of difficult, but beautiful and fun rapids.

2.) Normandy, France

While we are still in France, Normandy, France has a beautiful spot to go kayaking, and it is known as the Parc Naturel de Normandie-Maine. These rapids are situated between the Sarthe and Varenne rovers, and there are several tours you can take. You can go on a casual one-day trip or a trip that lasts multiple days. The good thing about these adventures is that there are 3 different classes to choose from: you can go on anywhere from a class 1, which is best for families or total beginners, all the way to a class 3 rapid which is suited more for very experienced kayakers. There is something fun for people of all ages to do here!

3.) Lake Saimaa, Finland

Lake Saimaa is a huge system of lakes and rivers that come together to form the fourth largest body of freshwater in all of Europe. The water in these lakes is clean and during the spring it comes to life. It is an easy body of water to kayak on, and there are literally thousands of tiny islands, small rivers, and systems of lakes for kayakers to explore.

4.) Hamburg Germany

This is the place to visit! There are several different rivers and channels on which to go kayaking while in Hamburg, but one place stands out among the rest. Supl is a small channel that is about 5 nautical miles long. It is perfect for families pr beginner kayakers, and it is the perfect place to go for a day-long outing. The water isn't too choppy, but it is exciting enough that you enjoy every minute of the water and seeing the sights of Hamburg along the way. A trip to Hamburg would be worth it for anyone.

5.) Algarve, Portugal

Algarve is known around the globe for tourists coming to see the beauty that lies along its coastline. There are resorts along the coast where you can rent a kayak and you can go out and explore the hundreds of big and small bays and coves that go along the coastline. It has relatively calm waters unless the weather itself is bad, which makes this a perfect, beautiful place for families and beginning kayakers to go and experience kayaking on the ocean.

6.) Sognefjord, Norway

Sognefjord is home to the second largest fjord in the entire world which goes along the southwestern coast of Norway; for this reason, it is known as the world's most iconic destination, which also makes it one of the top places to go kayaking in all of Europe. It is not only the rich beauty of Sognefjord that brings kayakers in, but the Viking history that is deeply rooted there, as well as the many activities kayakers, can find to do there.
