COVID-19 STATEMENT: Like most tour operators & kayak schools, we have been heavily affected by the global pandemic and the resulting restrictions on movement during 2020, 2021 into 2022.

Over the past three years we have managed a number of coaching courses, clinics and trips in Norway during the summer, mainly with nordic paddlers.  In the autumn 2021, trips in Slovenia were possible along with an autumn course programme in Devon, UK. We were very grateful to have such opportunities to coach paddlers.

Looking ahead, we have many new requests from all over the world, as paddlers with dreams of fine white water look to a new year to wash away these pandemic times. Coaching is our passion, sharing our insight with paddlers on rivers, running fine white water is what we do. Our 2022 programme is online, please Contact Us with your request.

Naturally all local in destination COVID-19 restriction will be followed. These sovereign laws outline individual nations requirements for kayak coaching's delivery, see Reopen Europe for details. On all Teaching Trips, we offer both an all inclusive option plus a Coaching/Guiding Only option too on all bookings.

NB, all outstanding bookings from 2019 onwards will be honoured, plus we welcome new enquiries too. In operating for 20 years, our place in kayaking is based on full service with personal coaching, where integrity and clarity of purpose are central to our values.

We wish you all well, and hope to see you in an eddy soon, until then stay safe and the best of luck.  25th May 2022.
