Kayak Beginners Training Weekend

24 June - 25 June


In the kayak Beginners Training the basics are applied and practiced on a river in the second degree of difficulty. After a theoretical review of the techniques you have learned in the Beginners Course we step on the gas! Rope ferries, until you glide easily over the current; sweep water driving, until your boat goes in like on rails. The Beginners Training offers you a preview of our advanced 1 course and prepares you ideally for it.

The aim of the course is to consolidate the basics and gain experience on the river. Even those who have not attended Beginners Course with us - but already bring a few days of river experience - is right in this course.
