1. Tasters (for beginners)

A qualified and experienced instructor can guide and coach you and give you a taste of the challenge of paddling. There are many outdoor activity providers in South Wales that can give you an introduction to this exciting sport. It's also possible to hire canoes, kayaks and stand-up paddleboards on some sections of our rivers, canals and lakes.

2. Improvers (for returners and skills builders)

Have you considered private guiding or lessons? If you’ve tried it, liked it and want to do more then an instructor can guide you on the best routes the area has to offer, or teach you the skills needed to become an independent paddler.

3. Independent experiences (for enthusiasts and experts)

If you are already a paddler and are looking for a little adventure then you’re in the right place. The Brecon Beacons National Park has a variety of canals, lakes, reservoirs and rivers, all in beautiful settings.
