COVID-19 STATEMENT: Like most tour operators & kayak schools, we have been heavily affected by the current global pandemic and the resulting restrictions on movement during 2020 & early 2021.

Norway this summer was open for some inbound tourism, with paddlers coming from both near and far to join us on the Sjoa River. Bookings have been solid all summer and well into September, with several more weeks to go for the season. We have on offer trips in Slovenia, a Class II/III paradise too, from September into October.

Looking to the rest of the autumn and winter in Devon, UK, we are running our wide range of white water clinics, courses & assessments, plus both one2one & group coaching upon request. Please Contact Us with your request.

We of course will honour all outstanding bookings from 2019 onwards and welcome new enquiries too. In operating for 20 years, our place in kayaking is based on full service, personal coaching & great lines to paddle down.  We wish you all well, and hope to see you in an eddy soon, until then stay safe and the best of luck.  3rd September 2021.

100% Whitewater Kayaking!

For almost two decades Gene17Kayaking has been at the forefront of coaching white water kayaking, through our courses, adventurous paddling and steep creeking programmes.

You can paddle with us on the Class V of Norway, run deep Canyon in Greece, improve your boofing and develop your river running skills. If you love rivers and want to push harder, find flair in your paddling or go steeper, then join us.
