DRIVE Dordrecht // boat trips, canoeing and SUPing
Speaking of Biesbosch, let's go to the waters. For those who prefer a less active activity, they offer nice and quiet boat tours. For those who prefer active activities, you can canoe and "SUP", SUP stands for Stand Up Paddling. It is actually a mix of surfing and canoeing and originates from Hawaii. In recent years, supping has become extremely popular in the Netherlands, making it a must-experience in the Biesbosch.
