Canoeing is a beautiful, elegant way of exploring the water and enjoying the wildlife and scenery. As with all our courses there is a clear pathway from beginner to advanced, but our programmes always include a number of canoe journey’s and expeditions designed with those in mind for whom it is more about the journey and the location than just the instruction.

3 star training & assessment

This five-day course is a combined training and assessment. The week will be structured to meet the group’s needs, plenty of time will be spent developing the wide ranging skills required to efficiently paddle a canoe in a variety of environments. These environments will include simple moving water, as well as open water with winds not above force 2-3.
