Kayak courses

  • We have 3 hour, 1 or 2 day white water kayak courses available all summer long

    A kayak course is a very rewarding activity, we focus on high quality learning, which maximise enjoyment and development of technique.  Kayak courses usually run over weekends but we will run courses for small groups at anytime during the summer holidays.  We have all the equipment necessary and some very experienced instructors.

    What is white-water kayaking?

    • Paddling a closed cockpit kayak with a spraydeck
    • River running and play boating on short sections of river.

    Is it safe?

    Our guides come from all around the world and offer first class instruction. Trollaktiv puts a special emphasis on staff training.  We aim to ensure you have a quality, fun and safe activity.
