Beginners Kayaking Course North Wales

Beginners Kayaking Course North Wales

Our beginners kayaking course will introduce you to the sport of kayaking in a fun and safe way, allowing you the opportunity to hone your skills and learn how to keep yourself safe whilst out on the water. Llanberis in North Wales is the ideal place to visit when learning to kayak. There are various local lakes such as Llyn Padarn in Llanberis, which provide ideal locations for exploring, and practicing skills. We aim to visit other lakes, rivers or coastal venues around North Wales as the course progresses and your confidence increases.

What does the beginners kayaking course cover?

During this beginners kayaking course we cover a range of kayaking skills, many of which are listed below. As with all our courses we try to tailor the course to everyone's' individual needs so content may vary occasionally. We offer a 2 and 5 day option.

2 Day Course:

• Basic kayak paddle strokes
• Safety principles including rescues

“I went on a canoeing course with Louise and it was really nice to have a female coach. She was able to teach me in a way that suited me as a female paddler and I felt much more comfortable with her than I have in the past with some male coaches. She understood my learning needs and allowed me to relax, but at the same time challenged me when necessary. Her technical ability was really good and she has inspired me to push myself further. Louise is a great coach and I am very keen to book again in the future!”
