What you'll do
You will be picked up from anywhere in Cluj-Napoca area. Then, we will go to my lake house about 40 minutes drive from the city. We will launch the kayaks and/or stand up paddles and /or hidrobicycle and have a brief introduction on safety measures. Afterwards, the fun begins and we will start our tour by paddling close to the lake house. Once you feel comfortable, we will cross the lake on the opposite shore which is more rugged and wild. We will go to some picturesque cliffs where you have the opportunity to swim. The tour continues on a lake part which I like to call the 'Amazon' as it is wild and unspoilt. Next, we will do a short hike up an amazing cliff from where you can take the coolest pictures and enjoy a snack. Along the way, we will stop in different bays and I will share with you fun facts about history and wildlife. After approximately 2.5 hours depending on your speed, we will cross the shore again and return along the other lake side, where you will have the opportunity to watch the cozy lake houses built by locals for vacation. Overall, the tour takes approximately three hours with the hike included. If you're not paddling with myself, you'll be guided by Szili, a local with plenty of experience in kayaking and adventures. For dog lovers: My dog loves to SUP/kayak and for those of you who want to take cool Instagram pictures he'd love to join us!
I spent most of my life at Tarnita lake so my experience in kayaking, stand up paddling and basically every other water sport is 20+ years. Also I've been to every corner of the lake and every mountain top of the area where this experience will take place . I strongly believe that this will be the highlight of your Cluj Napoca visit and all of our guests confirmed this . Having traveled often, I speak fluent English and German and I love interacting with people from other cultures. If you are looking for a memorable, one of a kind experience in the middle of scenic lakes and hills, this is the perfect one for you!
I provide you with: - kayak and/or Stand up Paddle and/or hidrobicycle - life jackets - paddles - snacks and water
