Experienced Instructors/Referees to ensure your enjoyment and safety
Wetsuit hire and helmets
Located in pretty Peak District countryside
Getting out on the water is always a great laugh. It just works. Canoeing in Derbyshire alongside the gorgeous countryside is definitely one for the bucketlist, so to experience it with a bunch of your mates is guaranteed fun.
Our kayaks are single cockpit style and the canoes are Canadian/Open style – you can choose either one for your group activity.
Get your wet suits on (that’s an activity in its’ own right) and go out as a group with your personal instructor in his own kayak. The activity is set in a gorgeous reservoir located in the heart of the Peak District. Great pub down the road too.
The water is approx 15 metres deep, so all the members of your group need be water confident, although you don’t actually need to be able to swim as buoyancy aids are provided.
We’ll teach you how to get to grips with the kayaks/canoes, including advice on paddling and basic boat movement. If you’re game enough you’ll learn the capsize drill. You know, that bit where you get to try and roll over while staying in your seat. Don’t worry though – it’s not essential if you don’t fancy that bit.
We’ll get you doing races against each other, and we can add some extra challenges into the mix to ensure your session will go by in the blink of an eye.
You should certainly try canoeing in Derbyshire for a few hours of scenic fun.
Massive thanks to Greg and HDK for organising a great stag weekend. Greg was easy to deal with, understood our needs and made everything seamless from the accommodation to the activities and pub crawl. Highly recommended!
Worried about organising a stag do for 28 people? Well don't be, just contact Greg he'll do it for you. Numerous activities available, transport and accommodation all sorted and all great quality. Helped to give my son a fantastic stag party and memorable weekend
My immense thanks to Greg and Hard Days Knight for organising me a fantastic stag do 25-27 March 2022. Unlike some of the national stag do agencies, HDK offer a personal service and really know the detail of all of the activities they offer and on the accomodation options. Greg was an absolute pleasure to deal with, nothing was too much and no question too silly. I really felt assured that I was in great hands with someone who put my mind at rest that they knew what they were doing, and the proof really was in the pudding, as all 15 of my group had a fantastic time.
