About Kayaking and SUP on Siriu Lake

Kayaking and SUP on Lake Siriu - a joy for mind and body!

In addition to the classic trips on the waves of Buzau in rafting boats or kayaks, we invite you to complete the experience (or the weekend) with a relaxed tempo trip on Lake Siriu. We sail in two person inflatable kayaks, cheerfully coloured, very stable and easy to handle - you don't need any experience for that. Lake Siriu is 11km of calm beauty, with wooded shores and deserted bays that beg to be admired up close and explored in the blink of falling water droplets.  

What is SUP, or Stand Up Paddling?

Well, besides a great core strength workout, SUP means 2 hours of freedom. Silence. Inner dialogue or perhaps a chat with fellow adventurers. Find the full history of this wonderful sport in the FAQ section but if you don't have the patience here's how it started, in a nutshell (taken from supconnect.com): "Stand Up Paddle boarding (SUP), the act of propelling oneself on a floating platform using a paddle or stick originated thousands of years ago and on many continents, but its current form and popularity originated in Hawaii in the 1900s . Ancient forms of SUP have been found as early as 1,000 BC in Peru, Israel, Italy, China and beyond. Unlike those modern forms of practice in which a surfboard-like raft is used, it has a much clearer heritage dating back to the 1900s and being linked to a few characters such as Duke Kahanamoku and Dave Kalama. The sport has gained exponential popularity and California has served as a catalyst for its worldwide adoption. In 2005 what had previously been almost entirely a surfing discipline began to diversify into competitions, tours, river rafting, yoga and fishing."  

Are you ready to give it a try?

Or enjoy the water and sun, if you're already past your first paddling experiences? Perfect, let's see what there is to do:
  • If you come rafting, you can equip yourself at Arca Rafing Camp, 2.5 hours from Bucharest, 1.5 hours from Brasov. Your car stays safely in the hostel's parking lot
  • The walk to the water takes 30 minutes. We can meet you there if you bring your car
  • You'll learn everything you need to know before you get out on the water
  • The route and duration of the ride depends on your experience and motor skills
  • You will be accompanied by a specially trained guide
  • The tour ends at Arca Rafting Camp with a hot shower, a clean locker room and possibly a cold drink
  • If you come directly it's possible to meet you right on the lakeshore!
We've got lots of ideas for your shift, you know! It can be a leisurely stroll along the banks. Or a race against the clock. Or an exploratory lap or a combination of flowing water with the calm glow of the lake. Or a full moon, SUP and barbecue grill. Or yoga. Or... We'll plan it together before we get out on the water! Come kayaking and SUP on Lake Siriu! You'll love it with us too:

Do you want to rent just the equipment, without a guide?

It costs 150 lei/equipment (board, paddles, floating vest on request)/full day. Double kayak costs 450 lei for one day. The equipment is picked up/purchased at Arca Rafting Camp and requires a guarantee with an identity document. Do you want to discover Lake Siriu just by kayak (we usually take kayaks and SUPs out on the water together)? The tour is just as relaxing, but less challenging for balance. From kayaks you don't fall :) Instead we can go longer distances and kayaking is suitable for those who don't want to get completely wet or swim. You can also find us with photos and videos on facebook

Frequent Questions

  • What do they do with the glasses? Car keys? Phone?

    Leave all valuables in your personal car. If glasses with glass lenses are dangerous on the water, it is preferable to leave them in the car as well. Ask us for details on the spot.

  • Have you had any accidents on the water so far?

    Not since 2005 when we've been taking groups out on the water.
    Your security is our number one priority.
    We take all the necessary precautions on every tour and in turn we continuously prepare for any incident.

  • How did Stand Up Paddling come about?

    It is believed to have originated in Peru, South America.

    More than 2000 years ago, the locals used to assemble reeds into canoes or rafts, which they manoeuvred with a paddle, sometimes standing up. They called them "Caballito de Totora" and would take them out across the surf, out into the Pacific! On the way back they used the waves to increase their speed and it is believed that the most skilled did it standing up!

    After 1940 professional surfers Dave Kalama and Laird Hamilton of Maui, Hawaii birthed the recreational SUP using long paddles to move their longboards into the surf.

    The early 2000s was a boom for SUP, today coastal resorts abound with rental centres and stand up boarding schools.

     

    From here to the "assault" on rivers was just a step, today it is fashionable to "surf" on the natural waves of rivers that allow this.

    And from 2020 we invite you to try with us on the Buzău River!

  1. Satmarean Victor Andrei -

    A very pleasant experience with the soup. The organizers were very attentive and patient with us, being a group of beginners 🙂

  2. Veronica -

    It's the thing!
    What running does for some, SUP does for me... it clears the mind of "lint"! Don't just go once... you'll come back whenever you feel the call!

  3. Emilian -

    If we go by the call, I would do it every day!!!
