Paddle the Iowa
August 22 @ 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Come to the Amana Colonies for a four hour paddle trip on the Iowa River! Hop in the river with your kayak or canoe in South Amana and paddle down the river to Homestead. Just like our Volksmarches, this event is self-guided and doesn’t have a specific start time. We suggest getting on the river around 10:00 am and packing a picnic lunch to enjoy on one of the many sandbars along the way.
From 9:00 am – 11:00 am, the Visitors Center will run a free shuttle between the South Amana and Homestead so that you can drop your kayaks or canoes off in South Amana and then park your vehicle in Homestead to be ready for you when you finish the paddle. If you wish to use the shuttle service, please click here to read more details.
This event is subject to weather and river conditions. If it is not safe to be on the river, we will post this event as cancelled on the calendar and will make an announcement on The Amana Colonies Convention and Visitors Bureau Facebook page.
