  1. My Adventure in Box, the ONAK - by Joao

    The ONAK has given me a total sense of freedom when it comes to going on mini adventure trips. Know I can just fold/ unfold and enjoy city trips, while opening the door to other more adventurous trips. 

  2. Impressions of a canoeing rookie

    My maiden voyage with the ONAK canoe led me through the beautiful historic canal Reep in Ghent.

  3. Australia, be prepared!

    Traveling with the ONAK! One month ago the moment was finally there! Hop on the plane and leave for a year!
    First of all a short layover of 3 weeks in Indonesia. Call it a pre-holiday. How decadent. ;)
    Afterwards: Onto my real destination: Australia! The ultimate outdoor country so a perfect fit to go on an adventure with the ONAK.
  4. Once there was...

    ...a foldable canoe in search for a companion to go explore. After a while he finally found a little foldable bicycle. And so the friendship between the ONAK and the Brompton arose.Their friendship was based on simplicity and teamwork. When one of both was tired, the other took the lead and continued the journey. One day the Brompton took the ONAK on his back and they left for the water. Because the ONAK was not the lightest, the little bike was quickly exhausted. They decided to build a carriage and so the bike pulled the canoe, using a piece of climbing rope and a carabiner. All set!

  5. Simply Sybi

    ‘When dreams come true’ ... this happened to ex-colleague Otto, the creative brain and founder of the origami canoe ONAK. All beginnings are tough, but Otto found the right people with an equal amount of passion, who helped make the dream come true! Otto is from Ghent and that’s why we were lucky to test the canoe :) We enjoyed a wonderful demo in the Ghentian ‘Dok Noord’. Read more...
  6. Canoeing on the reservoir of Nisramont (Barrage de Nisramont)

    Did I feel like taking a photo trip with @kristof.massoels and @carlospimentel to test the ONAK, an origami canoe? I didn’t have to think about this question long. After a ‘WhatsApp-brainstorm-session’ the Nisramont reservoir (le Barrage de Nisramont) came up as destination for this micro adventure.

  7. Egon & Simon on an adventure!

    Two amateurs taking the ONAK for a spin through Ghent city!

    Simon and I recently did an internship at ONAK, and we thought it would be great to tell you guys the story of our first paddle.


    Uncover the hidden side of the world’s cities on the water.

    For many people, ‘canoeing’ conjures up pixel perfect pictures of pure wilderness. Misty lakes, rocky shorelines, old-growth forests. With no sound but the wind and a paddle slicing through the water... 

    But you don’t necessarily have to head up north for adventure. If you live in the city like I do, there are plenty of opportunities to paddle in your own backyard and explore the city from a totally different perspective. First we take Ghent, then we take Berlin... En route!

  9. In-depth: Dressing for an amazing winter paddle

    We love paddling our foldable origami canoes in winter. When you feel safe paddling calm canals and rivers, like for example in our hometown Ghent, it's not that difficult to get dressed warm enough. Just wearing the clothes you’d normally put on when going for a hike will suffice.

    In this article, we will elaborate on how to stay comfortable when paddling in winter. We’ll also focus on what you can add to leave nothing to chance, because when you are always close to the water it can be dangerous to be unprepared. One rule is definitely true in all cases: keep some spare set of clothes at hand in a waterproof bag.
