Itinerary

* Please note: Itinerary is subject to weather and availability.

What to Expect


You'll spend day one in our rolling pool, and on our pond and lake covering essential foundation skills and how to exit a kayak effectively in the event of a capsize. We'll then develop your boat handling skills using our wide fleet of kayaks. Throughout day two we'll visit other stunning local venues to enjoy all that Snowdonia has to offer where you'll continue to build on your new skills. If weather permits, you'll have one day on a local river and another on the sea.

Experience Required

You should be water confident and able to swim.

There really is nothing quite like 'messing about in boats' and the kayak is a flexible and adaptable craft that will provide you with endless hours of enjoyment. Come and learn the foundation skills with us and start yourself off on a lifetime of exploration
