Kayaking & Canoeing

See the world by water

Kayaking is the most versatile way to travel by water. A skilled kayaker can traverse any watery obstacle; from lakes and rivers, to rapids and waterfalls, and even the open ocean!

If you're looking for adventure, or want to get closer to nature, kayaking is the best way to go. Paddle noiselessly down remote rivers where few others have explored before, and get a unique view of your surroundings. Or go for that adrenaline rush and take to the rapids, waterfalls, and open ocean.
