Whether you're a complete beginner or a hardcore river guru, Canoe Club is the place to be. The most active and best-equipped student kayak club in London, we run regular weekend whitewater river and surf trips to various parts of England and Wales. These are great value, costing around £40 for accommodation, transport, gear, food and all you can drink. We usually head away for an extended trip 2/3 times a year to places like Scotland, Ireland or the Alps, as well as running more adventurous trips to the Pyrenees and Norway. More experienced members of the club have ventured as far as India, Vietnam, Sri Lanka and Peru with their kayaks...this could be you in a couple of years! The best place to start is at Ethos swimming pool on Tuesday evenings where you can improve your skills, learn new tricks, have a few relaxed games of canoe polo and then head to the Union bar for a drink afterwards. We're a sociable, friendly club with members from all over campus and some from other London Unis too. So, whether it's running huge waterfalls, perfecting the latest freestyle moves or a gentle ride with some great company, you'll find Canoe club a perfect place to develop your paddling and social life.
Only available to members of Imperial College Union.
