The kayak trip is  a shorter version of the regular kayak school session for the ones who just want to go for it without detailed explanation of paddling technics and in-dept practice of river positioning and navigation. 1.5 hours rivertime including more river running with less detailed instruction talk and lesson from the instructor. You can learn basic white water techniques and put them in action immediately on a beginner friendly river environment.

If you are interested in the more detailed teaching check the kayak school trip out.
