If you enjoy choppy waters, a kayaking trip in Brecon Beacons is sure to get your blood pumping. Have fun paddling in a small waterfall upstream amid a flutter of white water. Your skills and ability will be tested frequently during the journey. 

Get ready to be hit by powerful currents in a fast-flowing river. You’ll wobble, your bow will swing, and need will be dropped in chilling cold water. You will be expected to take decisions and react within a fraction of a second.  

If you’re looking for a challenging kayaking trip, you’ll find our packages useful. Our programmes are designed to suit the needs of both beginners and those looking to improve their skills. Our British Canoeing-certified coach will teach you the basic techniques of kayaking.
