It all started with a dream… canoeing became a part of me

Fascinated by nature, I have spent many years in the mountains as a fervent skier.
My regular day-job consist of working with teenagers, I’ve also got two of them at home.
A busy life…

In my search of an escape from the daily rat-race, I discovered canoeing. A true eye-opener for me.
Floating slowly on the water, enjoying nature and it’s simplicity, experiencing the elements.

Paddling on your own, to nature’s rhythm and flow, in harmony with the surroundings.
That’s the dream I want to share with you.

You can canoe all-year-round wth each season revealing it’s specific charmes.

I offer original Canadian canoes witch are easy and comfortable to use.
The best way to discover the branches of the river ‘de Leie’.
The starting point is situated in the historical heart of Drongen (near Ghent).
Respect for the environment – in every aspect – is essential to dakanook.
Come and discover yourself; this beautiful close-to-home spot.

I hope to welcome you soon!
