Are you new to kayaking or have you only paddled a few times before? Then this is the try-out course for you who want to learn the basics of paddle technique.

We offer 2 hours try-out kayak courses at the kayak rental at Navensberg. (We also offer this at Läckö castle, click here to learn more and book) Also suitable for people who have tried kayaking a few times before. The course’s focus is on getting acquainted with the kayak and other kayaking equipment as well as basic paddle techniques and safety. You get to try paddling out on a little trip out into the archipelago with the instructor.

Do you want to learn more? Then choose our beginner course with comrade rescue, it is the equivalent of try kayaking + continuing course and coffee, which will be cheaper than if you book those two separately.

Good to know: Not sure what to wear? Dress as you would for a lighter workout. If you use glasses, keep in mind that they can fall off so bring a spectacle cord (We have spectacle cords for sale at the kayak rental).

If you want to continue paddling after you try the course, you can rent the kayak for the rest of the day at a reduced price. This is booked on site.
