För dig som vill lära dig mer om kajakpaddling
Långholmen kajak offers a try-it-out-kayak course with an instructor, perfect for first time paddlers, for those who wishes to learn more about kayaking or for those who simply wants to be part of a nice tour. We begin on land where we go through important safety measures, fundamentals in paddle technique, how to step in and out of a kayak at a deck and a beach
When seated in the kayaks we start of by getting a feel for the balance by paddling forwards, backwards and turning around. Then we do a couple technique exercises and in a relaxing tempo head around Reimersholme and Långholmen.
At the end of the tour you get the opportunity to flip over the kayak and learn how to get back up from the water (comrade rescue), of course with the help of our instructors.
Price for one evening (ca 2 h) is 490 kr including the rent of one single kayak.
We make sure to always adapt the level of difficulty of the course after the level of participants.
Bring a water bottle. Make sure to bring a dry change of clothes if you get wet. Sign up to a course by choosing one of the occasions here to the right.
