Ideal for your first go at kayaking. Beginner and Novice level with your first river trip on day 2.

A great outdoor activity weekend in Wales kayaking .

The weekend provides 2 days of training and fun on the water learning to paddle a kayak for the first time.
Starting with calm flat water sessions to build your confidence, then progressing towards a short trip with some gentle rapids. The introduction weekend is a great way to discover or try kayaking. The first day will give you time to get to grips with the boat and all the equipment used to make kayaking a fun and safe outdoor activity.

Under the guidance of an experienced instructor the weekend will provide you with practice time to learn some boat control. We aim to help with the frustration of learning to paddle forward and provide comfortable modern kayaking equipment.
