SUP round trip-Garwitz
- Tour tips: Lewitz European bird sanctuary, Garwitz historic lock gate, churches in Matzlow and Garwitz.
Rail connection: Spornitz
The start of your tour is the water hiking rest area Lewitzcamp, directly on the Müritz-Elde waterway in Garwitz. You lower your SUP into the water and off you go on a three-hour journey of discovery.
Without counter-current you glide with the SUPs past the extensive forest areas of the Garwitzer forest. About 150m before the canal bridge Damm-Malchow you have to turn around. After about 30 meters overland you enter the Alte Elde - the original river arm.
Here the contrast to the waterway becomes apparent. Barely 200 meters straight ahead, curves again and again offer a new view of the river and meadow landscape. The 'diamonds of the water', the kingfishers, nest in the break-off edges of the banks and occasionally a beaver sticks its head out of the water.
After about 7 kilometers the old river and the canal meet again. Via the Garwitz lock, after a lift of about 4 meters, you get back to the upper section of the waterway. The kiosk at the local open-air swimming pool offers the possibility to enjoy a delicious ice cream directly at the canal bank. The last 300 meters to the operation site are now easily done. Those who wish can end the tour here with a hearty barbecue around the campfire.
The first section of the tour leads from the Lewitzcamp on the Elde to Damm. The waterway is easily navigable, light currents and occasionally motorboats can be found on the canal section. No locks. Shortly before the weir the SUP has to be transferred. Back we go on the tributary of the Elde - motorboat-free section, again and again wide curves, low gradient, easy and continuous to ride.
