The starting point, for example, is the campsite in Warnitz on the eastern bank of the Oberuckersee lake. From here, the route goes north into the 5 kilometres Ucker canal – the link to the Unteruckersee lake. Before this, it is worth making a detour to visit the little village of Fergitz on the western bank of the lake. The Ucker canal contains the largest continuous reed area in Germany. The banks have been left almost in their natural state, and the canoe glides through a marsh and meadow landscape. The upper section of the river is narrow and winding, lined with trees in places or else with a clear view across the meadows to the horizon. There are inclines along the way, and these may also be stony if the water level is low. Tracks of beavers can be seen alongside the river bed. Around 15 kilometres downstream from Prenzlau lies the Nieden weir (canoes to be carried), taking us into Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Soon after this, we reach Pasewalk – and a modern waterway rest area. The river now widens and it is possible to paddle in both directions from here. Canoes have to be carried round a number of weirs or taken through boat lanes until we reach Torgelow. Meadows and forests alternate, and the banks are very steep in places. At the waterway rest area in Torgelow, canoes must be carried for about 400 metres. A little way up from the River Randow, which joins the route at Eggesin, there is another waterway reast area. To the north of the town, the landscape becomes more like a wilderness again. The natural meadow landscape is filled with enchanting backwaters, canals and old peat ditches. We reach our destination of Ueckermünde all too soon.
