“There is magic on this planet, and it is contained in water” – Loren Eiseley
Being near to water really does make us happier, and there are scientific reasons why we’re so drawn to dams, rivers, and oceans. Research has proven that humans are pulled toward water for its relaxing and restorative benefits, for its sensory stimulation of soothing sounds and smells, and for its magical beauty.
Many travellers seek water when going on holiday. It gives us an endless sense of peace and a chance to escape the stresses of modern-day life. Added to this, is that holidays by water are fun! Whether it is swimming, canoeing, surfing, fishing, skiing, stand-up paddling, kitesurfing, sunset boat cruises, or sailing – being by the water means you have access to a myriad of fun and memorable holiday activities that will keep everyone entertained.
If you are keen to enjoy activities like these, and wanting to take a holiday by the sea, alongside a river, next to a dam, or a crisp mountain stream, the Bergrivier region offers it all.
