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.

Need a date to suit you? River trips are available for private days out. Please contact us for a quote and availability.

Please note: We highly recommend that you have completed the Intermediate Kayaking Course before considering this river trip. These courses will give you the skills necessary to enjoy this trip and get the most out of it.

This river is more challenging than the Wye, due to the fact there are more rapids of a grade 2 level. This is to give paddlers a chance at testing themselves on some introductory white water.

Spaces for this trip are given to those onto our Intermediate Kayak Course as a priority, but any remaining spaces will then become available to the general public in mid August. If you are interested in doing a river trip with us, please contact us via email to express your interest. Once we know of numbers after our Paddling courses have confirmed spaces, you will then be given priority.



We meet at the river at roughly 10.00am (depending on the time and forecast) and usually aim to finish about 3:30 to 4pm

Details will be provided upon booking.



This trip is on the River Derwent, from Darley Dale to Matlock.
