About the experience

Paddle your way along the Derwent in the Peak District with a kayaking experience. Choose between white waters if you're looking for some fierce fun; or opt for a more relaxed tour outing - all of the stunning scenery of the Peak District included as standard no matter what you choose! These waterways are some of the most picturesque for kayaking in the area - with the rivers running past Bakewell, Matlock, Belper, and Derby. These experiences are excellent for beginners because the team use inflatable tandem and solo kayaks with stabilising side tubes. If you're a bit more experienced on the water there is still plenty of excitement on offer - particularly on the rapids session.
