What can I expect on the day

Kayaking North Wales - take to the water with an exhilarating experience based in Llangollen, North Wales. During this fantastic experience  you will embark on your first steps towards kayaking, with the benefit of expert help and the added bonus of beautiful surroundings for this fun to learn activity.

Your kayaking session is set on the picturesque River Dee and the trip will be set against the scenic countryside of North Wales. The lesson begins with registration and provision of all the equipment you will need, including buoyancy aid, safety helmet and kayak to suit your height and build.

Each group will be led by a qualified instructor who will give a full safety briefing and demonstration of the equipment before you get afloat. The tuition will take place on a calm stretch of the river or nearby canal section, so you can concentrate on developing your technique without fear of being carried off on the current.

You will gain knowledge of how to control your kayak, learning the basic essential flat water skills, including paddling forwards and backwards in a straight line, turning around, moving sideways and stopping.

When your instructor has finished the basic control skills and the theory of the capsize drill, it is time to kit you out, ready for your adventure. Soon you will be let loose to explore the open water. Here, you will have the chance to put your newly acquired skills to the test on the moving white water (don’t worry, they’re not gnarly rapids!).

All our instructors are passionate and enthusiastic, they love to paddle, and their admiration of the sport will make this experience hard to forget, leaving you wanting more. Luckily, as your confidence on the water grows with time, before the end of your kayaking lesson, there is always time for a few games of kayak tag to round things off!
