Many of us may have seen kayaking, either on a river trip, or on the television – it looks exciting, a big rapid, a colourful kayaker weaving a path through the waves and all the randomness of white water. You may have wondered, if you could be that person in the kayak, if you could look as graceful and have that much fun, being so much closer to the water than being on a raft.

If kayaking has caught your eye and interest, and now you want to learn how to negotiate rapids and how to surf those waves and holes. Let the Aquaterra Adventures Kayak School show you the ropes, from paddling in a straight line, to negotiating Class 1 & 2 Rapids, to taking the plunge into the tongue of a Class 3 or 4 Rapid.

At the Aquaterra Adventures Kayak School, our instructors have the experience and skill to teach beginners the basics of whitewater and the finer details of paddling skills and new techniques. We have a wide range of kayaks to suit your skill level and body type.

Kayak classes are scheduled upto 4 days. We recommend that you spend at least four days in our school as a first step. The reason for this is that you will have more time to learn and practice the basic skills, and then apply them to moving water.

Learning to kayak is challenging, but the rewards are well worth the effort. Kayaking will help you get some exercise, along with running some fun rapids, and of course keep you in touch with the great outdoors.

DAYS 1-4

  • Day 1

After you arrive at camp by lunchtime and had your lunch, we will teach you safety and rescue techniques, as well as fitting you into your kayak and how to use and wear your equipment.Further on we will give you theoretical introduction into the kayaking and you will get out and try the wet-exit and basic paddling techniques on the river. Hold your breath and relax!

  • Day 2

Your second day will get you into the water and you will learn how to ferry-glide, eddy in and out and practice more on your paddle strokes. After lunch we will go back on the river and you will be running your first class two rapids. Remember, to paddle in a straight line is one of the hardest things to do!!

  • Day 3

Day three will finally get you into the rolling sessions and you will learn how to re-right your kayak as well as getting your first intros into surfing on waves. Obviously you will practice things learned on day one and two. After lunch we will kayak the lower stretch of the Ganga and practice rolls and eddy turns. Motto for the day: Keep on rolling, rolling on the river.

  • Day 4

On day four we will try to run the first class three rapids and give you a taste of real trashing (only if you’re up to it). After collecting bits and pieces, we will have a final lunch and you’d be heading back to Delhi. After four days with us, you will have found out, that the river is only half of the experience and that the camp and relaxed atmosphere will have given you an enjoyable and exciting holiday.

WHY GO WITH AQUATERRA ADVENTURES

A question easy to answer, you may wonder, in an age where adventure travel is apparently booming. Varying costs are available and there is no shortage of operators willing to run your trip. This is possibly the most important decision for you to make, after you have chosen to take on an adventure trip.

An Experienced Team

Our team of guides has years of experience of travel throughout the Indian Himalaya, from running rivers to leading treks – from the barren Zanskar to the tropical rainforest of Arunachal Pradesh. They speak English, have completed graduate school, are current with First Aid and CPR certification and form the most experienced guiding team in the country today.

Value for Money

The prices of our trips provide a high value for money returns. They are priced to keep our standards high and your trip, smooth. Cost usually is a deciding factor for many a trip, but for an adventure trip, the deciding factor should be confidence in your operator. We combine high operator confidence with a pricing balanced to give you a trip to remember.

Best Equipment

Equipment on all our adventure travel trips matches worldwide standards. On treks, we use 4 season 2-person tents, which can withstand the harshest weather conditions, and keep you dry and protected from the elements. Outfitter wings accompany all mountain trips for dining under.

Great Food

Our staff is trained in hygienic preparation of meals and offers a great variety of food on an outdoor trip. Good equipment, food and guides is what makes an outdoor trip an experience to savour.
