Take the route less well travelled on a kayaking adventure
There is no better way to explore than a kayaking holiday. Peacefully paddling the most natural, scenic and least well travelled route through the countryside is not only perfectly relaxing, but gives you a unique viewpoint of the country, as well as the best chance to see local wildlife. Alternatively, those looking for a little adventure and adrenaline can try tackling rapids and waterfalls with a freestyle kayaking holiday. The options are endless.
When you have enjoyed a long day on the water, you really do need somewhere spacious yet cosy enough to relax; large enough to store you kit and dry out any wet clothes, surrounded by your friends or family, and with a kitchen large enough to get a really hearty meal on the go. A private villa or rural cottage cannot be beaten as a base for a canoeing or kayaking holiday, providing the space, freedom and comfort needed to really get the most from your break.
