A round trip across ten lakes in north-east Germany
The 35-kilometers- and 10-lakes-tour, which requires two to three days, begins and ends in Wustrow near Wesenberg. The boats are put into the water just outside Wustrow on the road to Canow at the canoe rental station on Klenzsee. The tour starts to the west and passes the entrance to Lake Gobenow (bridge).
