Paddling technique, safety and kayaking experience

Lite Venture Kayak Courses

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

Paddle technique and safety for beginners

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

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