ENJOYING WINTER PADDLING WITH A FRIEND

The winter paddling course is a kayaking course for those who have some experience with paddling and wish to make full use of beautiful winter days.

The goal of this course is that you will be able, together with a friend, to go on shorter day trips, even when the water is colder. We go through the risks, how we mitigate them and how you can avoid or reduce the risks.

We also talk about what you should consider when planning a trip in colder conditions, how you should be dressed and what equipment is needed.

This is the perfect course if you’ve always wanted to but perhaps never quite dared to try this amazing activity during the winter.
