Tips before kayaking Los Gigantes

Los Gigantes cliffs are a unique natural landscape in the world. The kayaks of the activity are easy to handle and no previous experience is necessary. However, here are some kayaking tips for beginners.

  • Sit upright, straight and with your back to the seat. Your toes should point outwards and your heels should point towards the centre of the kayak.
  • It’s best to paddle gently at first so you don’t get tired. Gradually pick up the pace as your muscles warm up. Even so, bear in mind that this is a group activity and you should not separate yourself from the group.
  • You must not stray from the group. During the whole route you will be accompanied by a professional guide and even a support boat. So that everything is under control, you must always respect the pace of the group.
  • Do not make any sudden movements. Kayaks are easy to control when going downstream, but sudden movements in the opposite direction can destabilise you.
