Learn to Sea Kayak in Scotland over two days in and around the beautiful Applecross peninsula. These trips take place over any weekend in the summer and winter and are particularly popular on the bank holiday weekends. We can also run the two days at any other time for groups of three or more. So if you want to take part on any two day date then just email us and we'll see what's possible. Find out what sea kayaking is all about - beaches, seals, otters and hidden treasures. Of course the best thing about learning to kayak in Applecross is that you'll be paddling in one of the most scenic kayaking areas in Scotland and it also happens to be the most sheltered area too. Applecross Bay is very shallow and sandy allowing a friendly environment for you to learn in and progress through the core paddling skills. This means that you can enjoy the real benefits of kayaking while learning with confidence at the same time. The two days will allow you to cover all the basic paddle skills and use them on a trip on the second day where you will be guided around the untouched islands and see the stunning beauty of the local area. The aim of the trip is to build your confidence in kayaking and introduce you to the skills that will allow you to pursue kayaking further allowing you to join longer day trips or multi day kayak camping expeditions in the future. Choose one of the options on the left and enjoy staying at the campsite, Hartfield Lodge Hostel or our local guest house. Oh - and did we mention that everyone who works here lives here. That means that we know the area better than anyone making the best use of your time and allowing an insight into this fantastic peninsula that is second to none. So make the best use of your precious time and we look forward to seeing you this summer. There are even some winter weekend dates which are great for blowing away the winter blues. All we do is to wrap up warmer and enjoy the winter shoreline too.
