WARNING! You're about to sign yourself up for an adventure. We will all meet and greet in front of the Kayak School. Choosing the right kayak and gear will be the first task to ensure you make the most out of the experience. We will then drive 5min to la Pilastra Whitewater Park, on the Ter river. This is the perfect location to make your first strokes on a whitewater kayak and learn the basics of the sport in a safe and controlled environment. Before getting dressed up and jumping into the water we will have a good safety briefing, where some basic concepts of river safety will be introduced. It is time for the fun to start! We will first hit the flat-water and do some exercises and games that will allow you to direct your kayak wherever you want it to go. Once steering your kayak has been mastered we will move to the rapids, and do a full run of the whitewater park top-to-bottom. After this injection of adrenaline we will move onto the basic whitewater maneuvers; catching eddies, crossing currents, surfing waves... we will push it as hard as you want. As a final test, we can set up a circuit with the slalom poles or you can give a go to the main freestyle spot.

The main activity will take place on the Pilastra Whitewater Park, in the outskirts of Gerona. In this location, 250m of the natural riverbed of the Ter have been enhanced for the practice of whitewater kayaking. The rapids of the whitewater park range from class II-III (easy to moderate difficulty). This is a great Whitewater Facility that is water-sure and hosts national and international events on a regular basis.

Whitewater kayaking is a water-based adventure sport. It is possible -and highly likely- to capsize, get very wet, etc. Bring towel and a set of dry clothes. Water is cold even in high summer!
