Spend two days on grade II and III white water in the spectacular Snowdonia scenery to boost your confidence before moving up to Intermediate level. We'll help you to consolidate your existing paddling skills before developing your balance and moving on to more advanced techniques. You'll also gain an insight into river reading.
You'll feel more comfortable and relaxed on the water, having developed your existing skills so you'll enjoy your paddling and feel ready to move to Intermediate level.
* Please note: Itinerary is subject to weather and availability.
What to Expect
On day one, we'll revisit the fundamental skills underpinning white water kayaking on a series of river trips to develop your practical skills. We'll also deliver a number of static site-based coaching sessions to cover essential safety and rescue skills to enable you to stay safe whilst paddling.
You should have some white water experience, and be able to perform a flat water roll.
Had a break from white water kayaking and want to get back into it again? Now's your chance!
We want to help you focus on achieving your goals, so comfortable accommodation (with WIFI included) and good food are part of the deal - you don't need to think about sorting this out for yourself. Support is on hand from our friendly, and exceptionally well qualified, staff to help develop your understanding and personal skills. They also help you to formulate an appropriate action plan for your further development. What's more, you'll have access to our extensive range of paddling equipment and clothing to use whilst honing your chosen skills. You just bring yourself, your 'can do' attitude, and determination to achieve excellence.
All you really need to bring is sufficient base clothing to wear, and some suitable footwear. Our stores have a wide range of Peak UK soft wear as well as paddles and poles. We have an extensive selection of kayaks from a range of manufacturers. This is an ideal opportunity to try something new if you'd like to. If you prefer the familiar, feel free to bring your own kit.
You should have kayaked fairly recently, but not necessarily in white water environment. You should be fit enough for an active couple of days.
