Jena for explorers and adventurers
There are few other cities that rival Jena when it comes to taking to the water – in a canoe, kayak, rubber dinghy or on a stand-up paddle board- and enjoying the views.
On this quiet stretch of the Saale river you can explore Jena itself, along with many other destinations in the surrounding region. The options on offer range from short tours of the city to half-day or full-day excursions venturing further afield. The various waterways lead through pretty valleys, past steep limestone cliffs, with picturesque picnic areas, castles, palaces and other attractions. Depending on the type of tour, the price may also include transfers, equipment and luggage containers as well as an induction to get you started.
You can get some exercise – or simply splash about and have fun – in the swimming pools in the city.
