Paddle tour, multi-day tour, water hike: Main

A trip on the Main is a journey through the history of our country. The river is the common thread, the towns and wine villages offer the highlights that we head for by canoe. We experience this journey by paddling in slow motion, the breaks between the many cultural highlights give us time to process what we have seen. Like a curved snake, the Main winds its way towards the Rhine until it flows into it. Anyone who has the peace and quiet for such an exceptionally long journey can triumph. The route described is around 300 kilometers long, so there is a lot on offer. In addition to the many sights, the friendly hospitality of the Franconians adds to the special charm of this river trip.
