Canoe World Buochs GmbH



Water sports
Buochs on Lake Lucerne is well-known and popular for canoe trips.

Paddling on the lake in a sea kayak or canoe (canoe) is an unforgettable leisure experience and even more so on Lake Lucerne near Buochs. The special location of the lake, nestled in the foothills of the Alps, makes you feel almost like you're in a fjord in Norway. That's why canoe trips are so popular at Kanuwelt in Buochs.

An offer for everyone

You can go on such canoe trips without any previous experience. The expert staff will tell you the most important tips and tricks for paddling and off you go. The more adventurous rent a sea kayak and discover the lake on their own. Those who are a little unsure go on an accompanied tour or book a course for themselves privately or in a group together with others.

All in the same boat

Canoeing is also perfect for groups. Be it a company for a team event, a club for an outing or a private group for an unknown adventure, everyone gets their money's worth. The large canoes, in which ten people paddle together, are best suited for this. True to the motto "everyone is in the same boat", teamwork and good communication are required. Especially when it comes to a duel against the other boat or a water fight with the other team. Of course, it doesn't have to be a competition. A leisurely canoe trip is just as much a part of the possible group offers.

Unique in Switzerland

In addition to its ideal location in the middle of Switzerland, Kanuwelt Buochs has an infrastructure that is unique in Switzerland. In the Nidwalden water sports centre directly on the lake in Buochs,  in addition to the canoe school office and canoe shop, it has modern sanitary facilities, lockers for valuables, a terrace with a view of the lake and a top-equipped seminar room.
