Kayak course

is another way to enjoy holiday on the Salza.

The kayak is suitable for beginners who have never been on white water before, as well as for those who have already tried rafting and would like to try something different.

A kayak differs from a raft in that it is not inflatable and you sit in it alone. And therefore without a guide to steer your boat.

Of course, a trained instructor is always present and ready to intervene if you need help.
