Matlock Kayak Trip

A fun day trip by kayak down the River Derwent, practicing a few beginner white water skills along the way. We’ll enjoy our packed lunches on the river bank before progressing towards the slalom course in Matlock.


Wanting to learn skills on moving water. If you have been on the Wye trip this is a perfect follow on trip. With small grade 1 and 2 rapids this is a perfect introduction to white water. As part of this trip we will look at the safety of paddling white water as well as the skills of running rapids, crossing the flow and catching eddies. As part of the trip we will look to find a nice scenic spot to eat our lunch on the river bank!
