För dig som vill lära dig mer om kajakpaddling

If you want to learn the basics of kayaking, you can take our beginner course at Kalmar kayaking under safe conditions. Then, together with an instructor, you will learn more about safety, paddle technique, boarding and disembarking at the float and beach.

We then set off in the canal to get to know the kayak, steer, stop and other basic maneuvers. When we feel ready, we paddle away at a leisurely pace in the canal.

If you want, you have the opportunity to try overturning the kayak and learn how to get in it again (peer rescue), under the supervision of our instructor.

The price for one evening (approx. 2 hours) is SEK 490 including renting a one-man kayak.
We always adjust the degree of difficulty of the sessions according to the level of the course participants.


  • You must be able to swim
  • Maximum weight 110 kg
  • 18+ years or accompanied by adult

The course is held with a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 10 participants.
