Beginners Training

In the kayak Beginners Training the basics are applied and practiced on a river in the second degree of difficulty. After a theoretical repetition of the techniques you have learned in Beginners Course , we step on the gas! Rope ferries until you glide easily over the current; sweeping water until your boat goes in like on rails. The Beginners Training offers you a view of our Advanced 1 Course and prepares you ideally for it. The aim of the course is to consolidate the basics and to gain experience on the river. Even if you have not attended Beginners Course with us, but already have a few days of river experience, this is the right course for you.

We offer our advanced courses in Tyrol, Corsica and Slovenia. Depending on the course location and duration, the course content and schedule will vary. Therefore, please choose one of our advanced courses for detailed information.

In Beginners Training the basics are practiced on easy white water.
