River Kayaking

River Kayaking in Malaysia

Kayaking is the use of a kayak for moving across water. It is distinguished from canoeing by the sitting position of the paddler and the number of blades on the paddle. A kayak is a low-to-the-water, canoe-like boat in which the paddler sits facing forward, legs in front, using a double-bladed paddle to pull front-to-back on one side and then the other in rotation. Most kayaks have closed decks, although sit-on-top and inflatable kayaks are growing in popularity as well.

River kayaking literally means that you use a kayak to move along the river. Whether you want to challenge your own fitness level or just stroll through our beautiful forest in a different way, there are a few places in Malaysia that offers different experiences. Below are a list of places that offers river kayaking adventures.
