Kayaking
Written by Catherine Davis   

KayakingA kayak is similar to a canoe except that it has a closed deck and is propelled by a double bladed paddle. Its waterproof design makes it well suited for fast, exciting sports like white water kayaking, tide racing and surf kayaking, where waves provide the challenge.

Kayaking is not just for thrill seekers, however. It also appeals to those who like to experience nature at a more tranquil level, providing the freedom to explore unspoilt scenery without the noise and smell of an engine. Sea kayaking, touring on lakes and rivers and kayak fishing are other popular forms of the sport.

Kayaking allows you to travel to wild, remote landscapes, get close to wildlife and unwind as you watch the world flow by. You don't need to be super fit or flexible; stamina is more useful than strength, and good paddling technique reduces effort. Courses and trips are available where you can learn the basics or if you fancy a more relaxed pace you could try canoeing.
