Canoeing and Kayaking Adventures

Take the route less well travelled on a kayaking adventure



Kayaking 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.

Those wanting to explore the wilderness, from Florida's Everglades to the Canadian wilds, will greatly benefit from taking a canoe or kayak. Taking a waterway is by far the most reliable way to see wildlife, and you can glide almost silently along a river, ensuring that your wildlife viewing opportunities are kept alive. There is also no easier way to traverse tough terrain than letting the river take you through the landscape.

Kayaking holidays don't have to be peaceful, romantic and relaxing though. Across the world are a huge range of fearsome whitewater kayaking rivers in locations whose scenery can inspire even the most travelled kayaker. If you have never tried whitewater or freestyle kayaking you can easily get lessons and guided runs in a vast range of destinations, from Whistler in Canada to Verdon in France.
