The Trip

Something new, something different! This is a true adventure in every sense of the word. Our two day kayak trip features all the adventure and fun of all our other trips whilst enjoying the wonders that a lake has to offer. There is no need to be an efficient kayaker, you do however need moderate fitness and a willingness to have a go. We will have a safety boat alongside all the time. We will be kayaking about 15km each day, whilst learning skills that will make you confident paddler.  With all paddle equipment supplied and assistance with camping gear, this is a great opportunity to get out on the water! This superb adventure is great for pairs in a double boat, or come by yourself and grab a single. All Kayaking Equipment, Guide / Instructor Services, Food, and National Park User Fees are included so you just turn up and enjoy.

Schedule at a glance

Day 1 - Arriving at Eildon after work, settle into our unique floating accommodation with a yummy home cooked dinner and a relax. We will sort through all camp gear ready to load into the support boat in the morning.

Day 2 - We will begin the day with a safety briefing on the beach and some handy technique advice before heading off on our journey along the beautiful and tranquil Lake Eildon. Along the way, we will pull over for a yummy lunch before heading to our camp site. From here we will have time to set up camp before taking a short hike up Blowhard Spur. Let’s now relax around the campfire, and enjoy marshmellows and a glass of wine!  

Day 3 - Wake up for a cooked breakfast before a rejuvenating yoga stretch session. We will start our journey with some games in the kayaks to gain more experience and confidence in the boats. We then head back to our starting point.

Grading - moderate

Participants should expect to paddle for 2-4 hours per day, and undertake one walk of approximately 2hrs. The paddling is on a Lake so we expect the paddling to be fairly easy, however weather conditions will determine how difficult it is. If severe conditions are experienced, then we will wait on a shore or the support boat will be available to shuttle clients to the destination. It is highly unlikely that clients will capsize, however we will go over all boat safety and paddling instructions, to give you confidence on the water. Clients should expect to get wet via paddle splash and general entry/exit from the boats. A reasonable level of fitness will be important and as with any of our tours  the fitter you are for the activity, the more the attention moves from exertion to experiencing your surrounds. If extreme weather is forecast, TSA reserves the right to postpone the event as per our terms and conditions.
