For everyone who has been kayaking before but never took a course we recommend Basic level 1 course. Our kayak course content is very much practical-based so there will be a little theory and a lot of exercises on the water to boost your paddling skills. This kayak course will be perfect for outdoor enthusiasts who would like to go deeper into the amazing adventure with sea kayaking.
If you want to take a next step to develop your sea kayaking skills welcome for Level 2 Euro Paddle Pass GREEN. There is no obligation to be assessed or receive the award if you don’t want / need it but it’s good to have as in many places you might be asked for your kayaking certificate before renting a kayak on your own hand. Duration: 4 hours training + 3 hours assesement (another day; you book it independently as it’s not obligatory). Training and assessment take half day each, with a few weeks time between training and assessment for practice. We recommend that you have completed Level 1 course or have equivalent experience (Yellow EPP / Paddle Discover / BCU 1* award).
Kayaking assesment for Euro Paddle Pass GREEN will take place during a relatively flat water journey of at least 2 hours (6 km). We recommend that you have completed training Level 2 or have equivalent skills to pass the exam. You’ll be eligible to receive the nationally recognised “Green Paddle Pass” if you reach the set standard by the end of the assesment.
… and yes, you will get wet! No water, no fun but we have a warm sauna waiting for us after all!
Our kayaking courses are mainly in English as we used to have very international guests which makes us very happy 🙂 Other dates, priv groups or swedish speaking leader is possible on request.
