Here are some links to other sites we use in planning our canoe/kayak trips.
Note: some of these are in Dutch.
Kanoroutes.nl – A helpful canoe route site built and maintained by a Dutch kayaker. He gives locations to kayak, launch points easy to access and has other areas in Europe where he has kayaked.
Trailerhelling.com – This is an interactive location map to all the boat launch sites in the Netherlands. It is color coded green for free, red for pay, and yellow for membership only launch. Site is in Dutch but easy to navigate.
Kanoweb– A Dutch website for everything you need to know about paddling in The Netherlands. From canoe rentals to routes this site has a bit of everything. This site is in Dutch but provides tons of information on paddling in Europe.
Canoe site by Dirk Barends – A Dutch webpage with the English/Dutch canoe and kayak terms.
Spirit of the Wilderness – A full service outfitter and guide service in Ely, Minnesota. A great first stop for planning any BWCAW trip.
Minnesota Department of Natural Resources – This Minnesota government site has links to all the State Parks located in Minnesota. Provides detailed information on the lakes and rivers within the state. I have also used this site to find classes (many times free or for a small fee) held at the State Parks. These are great ways to experience the outdoors or try something new without investing in all the equipment.
