Beginner's kayak course
The beginner's kayak course is taught on the Sava river in Ljubljana. The kayak instructor will introduce you to the basics of safe paddling in calm and not so rough waters. You will get to know the basic paddling equipment, on-water safety, how to enter the kayak and how to hold the paddles properly. You will learn some of the basic paddle movements to navigate your kayak. On the last day of the course, you can put your knowledge to the test during a pleasant trip on the river. Note that the beginner's kayak course can be completed in three days, but it is more intensive.
Advanced kayak course
This course is intended for advanced learners trying to improve and expand their knowledge. We focus on more demanding paddling techniques, sliding of the kayak, a correct and more precise entry into the current and counter-current, and tilting the kayak. With the new skills you will be able to use the current of the river to your advantage more smoothly and effectively. Paddling will also become easier and you will be able to handle more demanding conditions.
