DRIJF Dordrecht // boat trips, canoeing and supping
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 go canoeing and "supping", SUP stands for Stand Up Paddling. It is actually a mix of surfing and canoeing and is native to Hawaii. In recent years, supping has become extremely popular in the Netherlands and makes it a must-experience in the Biesbosch.
