Based in the Derwent Valley near Matlock, Acclimbatize are located perfectly to access and facilitate the best canoeing, raft building and kayaking activities in the Derbyshire Peak District.
Introductory sessions for canoeing and kayaking usually take place on placid sheltered water but more exciting opportunities to paddle on expanses of open water or along the River Derwent are equally convenient from our operating base.


Input on our Canoe and Kayak sessions may depend on location, age, ability, time available and weather conditions. The leadership style is mostly action centered and will include some technical demonstrations and the use of appropriate coaching methods.
Structured play and games are a key feature in our beginner water sport sessions. This is because structured play helps progress personal skill acquisition and boat handling techniques. This fun approach to learning deepens the level of engagement and boosts the retention of learning.

This adventure is perfect for individuals and small groups, and can be tailored for:

  • Corporates
  • Families
  • Hen / Stag parties
  • School groups
  • Dog Friendly
