Sit-on-top kayaks are convenient also for those who have never tried kayaking before. They are very stable and easy to use, which is why they are an excellent choice for people of all ages. They have several advantages over classic whitewater kayaks. Sit-on-top kayaks don't have an enclosed deck, which is why they are easier to enter and exit. There is no need for a spraydeck when paddling because the surplus of water flows out through the holes in the lowest section of the kayak. It is also very safe; if it capsizes, you can simply flip it back and climb it again. Lake and sea kayaking in good weather conditions requires no experience or prior knowledge of paddling. However, if you go whitewater kayaking, you have to be accompanied by a kayak instructor or complete a beginner's kayak course.
Kayaking on the Sava river with sit-on-top kayaks
This type of adventure is intended for people without prior knowledge of paddling in a classic kayak and for those who crave more adrenaline and fun on the river. Following short instructions, you will paddle your way through the easy rapids with a kayak instructor by your side. You can either choose a single kayak or a larger tandem sit-on-top kayak, which is also more stable. Moreover, a tandem sit-on-top kayak has an additional centre seat for a child.
Cycling & kayaking round trip
The round trip begins with easy cycling on side roads, tracks and forest paths along the Sava river. Then we cross the river over a narrow hanging bridge, make a stop at a spring of warm water and enjoy the panorama of the surrounding mountains. The cycling part of the trip finishes after about 45 minutes in Medvode – the kayaking starting point.
In Medvode, bikes and cycling equipment is exchanged for kayaks and kayaking equipment. After a short briefing on paddling & safety, the adventure on water begins. And it’s not just kayaking – we can always have a lot of fun on water with splashing, bumping, jumping in water etc.
The duration of the entire cycling & kayaking round trip 2,5 - 3 hours.
