  • Description

    Llandegfedd Activity Centre is running an activity open day on Sunday 4th August 2024.


    Our 30 minute canoe taster session will give you the opportunity to get on the water with an experienced instructor who will introduce you to the sport


    There will also be the opportunity to chat to staff from the Activity Centre about how to progress your canoe skills and other sessions on offer!


    Please note that canoes can hold a maximum of 2 adults, or 2 adults and 1 child, or 3 children in each canoe.


    The minimum age allowed on the water is 5 years.

    5 to 7 years old - Will need to be in a canoe with a responsible adult aged 18+

    8 to 13 years old - Can paddle own canoe, but must have a responsible adult aged 18+ on the water on the same session.

    14 to 17 years old - Can paddle own canoe, with a responsible adult aged 18+ on site that is contactable in the case of an emergency.


    Safety is our number one priority. In the event of poor weather conditions (e.g. strong winds or thunder and lightning) or other incidents we reserve the right to restrict water access to particular user groups, restrict the area available for activities, cancel sessions or close the lake. We will endeavour to give advance notice whenever possible; however sometimes decisions need to be made at short notice. If we close the lake, we will add a message to our website and endeavour to contact all customers impacted to offer the opportunity to reschedule their session or receive a refund.
