About the Event

Have a splash on the water and try canoeing with the family right in the heart of the stunning Lagan Valley Regional Park just minutes from Belfast City Centre.

This have a go canoeing session is suitable for ages 4 and up making it perfect for the whole family, even the little ones. You’ll have a chance to try both canoeing and kayaking with instructors on hand to ensure you and your family have the best possible time on the water. Rafted canoes will also be available for young children, creating a safe environment so all you have to worry about is having fun!

All equipment is provided including buoyancy aids, paddles and boats making this the perfect opportunity to do something different, exciting and memorable as a family without breaking the bank.

On arrival you will be kitted out with all the necessary equipment and given a safety briefing and introduction, then it will be time to get into your boats and get paddling! Instructors will be close by to keep a watchful eye throughout the session and provide any tips.

Splashing is not obligatory (although we think the kids will agree it is a lot of fun!).
