of my personal favourite sports, Kayaking is superb. I own two kayaks and enjoy kayaking in Spain, making my way out into the med to kayak with dolphins on a 'flat sea' summer evening is superb, as is kayaking on the locals lakes and waterways.
As well as being great fun and meeting the needs of all tastes, from adrenalin freaks to gentle nature watchers, the sport ticks all the right 'eco' and ‘good for you’ boxes. Its no wonder it is growing in popularity!
The Kayak is a superb way of getting up close to nature, both water and land based. The way a kayak silently glides across the surface of the water, allows you to get up close to superb wildlife and nature. And for the adrenalin freaks there are some superb white water adventures, through stunning scenery all around the world.
