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.

In line with the specific advice from the nation government's where we run operations in, we have significantly adjusted our practices and operations accordingly. This in the main is a mixture of postponements to 2021, plus a small number of private coaching sessions for both individuals and groups. Thankfully we ran operations in Norway summer 2020, although since mid autumn, in line with revised directions from the authorities all coaching courses have been postponed until such times as conditions change.

Happily all our 2020 bookings have rolled over to 2021. We are extremely grateful for the support from our paddlers, and look forward to clean lines and fine times next year from Slovenia to Valsesia to Norway. A HUGE thank you to you all. As such we are accepting both enquires and bookings on our 2021 Coaching programmes which run from spring onwards in both Italy & Norway, and in France & Norway during the forthcoming summer and in Slovenia for September.

Looking to the rest of the autumn and winter in Devon, UK, we are running one2one coaching upon request. Please Contact Us with your request.

We of course wish you well, and hope to see you in an eddy soon, until then stay safe and the best of luck.  8th March 2021.
