Available for 1, 2 or 4 people
Perfect gift for adventure lovers
Ever fancied a go at canoeing or kayaking or even paddleboarding but couldn’t make your mind up as to which one to choose? Then this activity is ideal for you. You will get the opportunity to try out all three crafts with a little guidance and help from the friendly, experienced instructors.
Brought to you by Action Adventure Activities near Gartmore, on the edge of the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park, this paddle sports experience would make an outstanding gift.
Lasting approximately one hour to 90 minutes on the water, it is available for one person, two people or a family (one adult and three children or two adults and two children), meaning it could be a group present too.
- A great introduction to kayaking, canoeing and the very hip sport of paddleboarding, your trip is based at Action Adventure Activities’ farm near Gartmore, on their own private lochan.
- The area’s spectacular landscape of mountains and lochs provides an atmospheric backdrop for this experience.
- You will be shown the basics of the different sports, with guidance from an expert instructor.
- Based deep in Braveheart country on the edge of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, Action Adventure Activities have spent over 30 years in the Scottish hospitality industry and the staff have a wealth of experience in numerous outdoor pursuits.
- Safety is their prime concern so, when you take to the water, you know you are in good hands.
- Paddleboarding is a variation on the traditional Pacific sport of surfing. In this sport, stand up paddle boarders remain upright on their boards and use a paddle to propel themselves through the water.
- The sport is on the crest of a wave in the States, where this traditional Hawaiian activity has become an outdoor pursuit as popular with hipsters as it is with families.
- With this offer, you will be able to learn canoeing and kayaking skills from the experienced instructors while enjoying the scenery from a new perspective.
- There is a minimum age of five for this Big Deal. All under eighteens must be accompanied by a participating adult.
- All craft, wetsuits, buoyancy aids provided.
