KAYAK BEGINNER COURSE Become a kayak addict!


This course is aimed for the one that is curious about kayaking and has decided to give it a proper try! Most chose to have a two-day course, but you can of course do more days if you want. The first day will be spent on flat water where you will learn the basic paddling techniques and river safety. Then each day we will take small steps towards making you proficient in current and smaller rapids, and make sure you get a real taste for the river.

Difficulty & Safety

No previous kayaking skills are required for this course. The course will be held on an almost flat section of the river (class 1-2). You will get warm paddling gear and an experienced kayak instructor will lead you through the course.

Age limit

The earlier you start kayaking the better! Best is age of 12 and up.
