Kayaking in a Range of Different Environments for Complete Beginners to Experts…
The area surrounding our Adventure Centre offers an awesome range of different places to jump into a kayak. From gentle lakes with gorgeous mountain backdrops to raging sections of white water in the nearby rivers, there’s something for everyone who’s keen to get out onto the water.
Lac de Castet
Ideal for groups of beginners to start learning the basics in a controlled environment, or anyone just looking to jump in a kayak and play around for a few hours, Lac de Castet lies just 5 minutes from Alkari’s Adventure Centre.
The Lake is surrounded by the high mountains making up the Vallee d’Ossau and offers spectacular views of the area as well as the perfect, safe environment to practice and learn before heading in to white-water.
The Ossau and Aspe Rivers
Once you’ve got to grip with the basics, or you already have a decent amount of
experience, you’ll move to the white water sections of the River Ossau or the River Aspe. Both these rivers provide stunning views of the surrounding valley’s as well as incredible sections of white water to get stuck into.
La Stade d’Eaux Vives
This white water slalom centre in the nearby city of Pau is an incredible location and one of the sites for the 2015 kayaking world championships! The course consists of a number of sections of white water and different obstacles to make your way through, as well as an underwater conveyor belt to bring you back to the start when you’re ready to go again!
The speed of the current can be altered depending on your skill level, so this is perfect for both novice and expert.
