Kayaking uses boats originally designed by Eskimos for travelling on the sea. With this in mind the boat is covered except for a hole around the waist. Kayaks allow beginners to have some fun, learning skills on a lake before advancing out on a river in further sessions.
These are the boats that require a two bladed paddle.
If you already have some experience and would like to take it further then a river trip is the way forward.
The rivers in the Lake District offer something for most levels and we can arrange accommodation to suit your taste and budget – just let us know what you are interested in.
Canoe and kayak hire is also available,
