one-day kayak trips
Kayaking tourism is getting increasingly popular and more and more people want to try to spend their free time in this way. At the same time many of them want to spend their time with their kids. Adults often take the approach “we’ll go and see”, but when they’re planning to go with their kids, a million questions arise. And that’s good, because you need to get ready for kayaking, in particular if this is your kayak debut and you’re going to take your kid. Kayaking on a calm lowland river is safe, but you should know in exactly what you are going to participate so that you have nice memories when the kayak rally ends.
Lowland kayak rallies are a form of activity practised mainly in summer. So choosing clothing for this kind of trip should not pose any problems. You should, however, pay attention to some important issues.
We usually wear a short-sleeved tee and shorts while paddling. We assume that it is better to sit in wet shorts than in wet long trousers. Today, clothes made from light, synthetic and breathable materials are available on the market. You should have such clothes if you’re planning to go on kayak trips frequently or on a long kayak trip. Remember that fabrics made from natural fibres such as cotton take a very long time to dry, while all synthetic materials dry much more quickly and – just like fleece – keep you warm even if they are wet. Thus sweaters, fleece shirts or jeans are not fit to kayak trips.

We’ve gathered the most basic information about what to take and how to get ready for a short one-day recreational rally in one place. This post is dedicated to those who are going on an organised kayak trip and don’t have to plan the route, the logistic details, or choose the equipment, etc. Have a nice read and enjoy the rally 🙂
