What we offer

A range of high quality kayaks

On every tour it is important that our guests have the best equipment, gear and kayaks on the market to make sure everyone enjoys a perfect day out paddling in Venice.

IDUN Norse

Upper intermediate - Advanced

With its hard chine and shorter length, you have full control. The lightweight V-shaped hull makes it easy to maintain speed and the course stability. 

YMIR Norse

Ymir is a large rudder kayak with a very long waterline. The long waterline and v-shaped hull gives great speed and tracking without compromising on stability.

The wide middle section of the boat in conjunction with its large volume and high sides provides for great stability and maximum security against capsizing.
