If you want to learn a new water sport, kayaking is ideal to start with, even together with your children. Our course takes place on a pretty and calm lake which lends itself perfectly to this activity. If you feel like continuing and coming a second time, we will then take you to the river (depending on your progress).
You arrive at our base at the scheduled time where you first have time to equip yourself (we have private facilities where you can change). You will be transported to the lake by minibus, where the instructor will give you a theoretical introduction. During the course, you learn the basic techniques on very calm water, so there is no risk. After two hours, you will be returned to our base.
