Paddling technique, safety and kayaking experience

Lite Venture Kayak Courses

At the test site on the Mecklenburg Lake District (Krakow am See), we offer paddling technique courses for all paddlers, as well as safety training for sea kayak tours.

Paddle technique and safety for beginners

The one-day basic course is aimed at beginners and paddlers who either want to learn basic technique or refine existing skills. In a relaxed and safe environment on Lake Krakow, you will learn how to perform the basic paddling techniques cleanly and how to get back on your own after capsizing. The training takes place in your own kayak.

It is also possible to make an individual appointment for yourself or a private group.
