Please consider bringing a snack/ lunch and enough water to drink with you as the excursion lasts an entire day. There will be the possibility of grabbing a locally brewn beer or something to eat during a break at noon in the inn/ restaurant "Held Bräu" (please bring cash money with you if you'd like to consume something). The bus company also sells beverages.

Kayak tour

The short route is suitable for a leisurely trip on the Wiesent river. The trip is in open 2-person kayaks or 3-person canoes. On the 5 km long boat trip, you paddle past rocks, meadows and forests as well as Rabeneck Castle. Two small weirs have to be negotiated and two small rapids provide a splashing pleasure. After a 1.5-2 hour trip through the picturesque Wiesenttal valley, you reach your destination in Doos.
