Whether a long or short trip, on Switzerland’s mightiest river you experience nature from a seldom-seen angle. An impressive canoeing trip through the Mittelland.
A fascinating trip through the Swiss Mittelland, on the longest river entirely in Switzerland and the one that also carries the greatest volume of water. Whether you travel several days in one go or pick out individual stages, you’ll experience an impressive natural and cultural landscape. And despite the Mittelland’s densely populated areas, you’ll also find an amazing amount of peace and seclusion.

The Aare was already an important transport route in much earlier times and the backbone of Switzerland’s development. Numerous towns and villages were built along the river and are still worth seeing today. After the decline of boat travel, the Aare was eventually used to produce power in the service of industrial development. The river became a sequence of storage reservoirs - a mammoth construction. So you can canoe on a leisurely current all year round. The river is mostly channelled, but a forgiving Mother Nature has laid her thick green robe over the traces of human activity.

Enjoy a journey of discovery through Swiss landscapes and history...

Power plants and weirs can be passed effortlessly with a folding boat trolley.
Closure of passage after Aarau
 
Due to the new construction of the Rüchlig Aarau power station, passage on the River Aare from Aarau to Biberstein is not possible in case of a water flow of >400 m3 from 02.07.2012 to 31.12.2014. Please note the current water level.
In such a case, boats have to be taken out on the righthand shore before the division of the river (Mühlematt) and carried down an approx. total distance of 800 meters (200 meters below the dam). It is recommended to use a trailer.
