Near the village of Nisramont, down in the valley of the river Ourthe, there is a large dam. Behind this dam, the Ourthe forms a deep stretch of water on which you can paddle for several miles, back and forth to the confluence of the 2 Ourthes, completely surrounded by greenery. An ideal location for paddleboarding. Stand Up Paddle: enjoy the beautiful surroundings while standing on a board!

This activity lasts 2 hours. You can combine supping with kayaking if the river is closed due to low water levels. We have supboards for beginners and advanced, and 2 large “tandem” sups (duos).

Adventurous, fun and achievable for everyone

You can learn to sup very quickly. We will explain to you at the start: how to get on your board, how to hold your paddle, the best way to paddle and steer, the best way to stand up… Then you can set off on your own and make a 2 km trip to the confluence of the 2 Ourthes and back. Paddleboarding is possible at any level: for beginners, we have wider boards that are easier to keep your balance, for advanced paddlers we have extra narrow boards that require more skills. Ideal for mixed groups, young and old, and for groups with a mixed physical level. And the dog can come along too! Families with children of different ages, groups of friends or corporate teams; everyone can join in!

Children may participate from 6 years of age (if they can swim): paddling independently or together with an adult on a board (or tandem). From 6 to 12 years, an adult must always accompany them and wearing a life jacket is mandatory.

What do you bring / what do you wear?

You paddle barefoot or in water shoes. Up to the boarding point it is best to wear flip-flops or sports shoes, which you can leave there or take with you on your board. Which clothing depends on the weather conditions: swimwear or quick-drying sportswear, a rain jacket or a wetsuit. Wetsuits (Long Johns) can be rented from us, you have to provide a thermal t-shirt underneath. Also think about a lanyard (!!!) for your (sun)glasses, sun cream, water (preferably no disposable bottles) and possibly something to eat.

Paddleboarding with your dog: bring a towel or mat to protect the sup. A life jacket for your dog is highly recommended!
