Kayaking on Hualien River

Introduction

Looking for a guided kayaking tour that brings you to the gorgeous Hualien river? Let’s paddle down the hidden gem, discover the spectacular nature of Taiwan with your beloved ones.

While most people choose sea canoeing, river kayaking is another option you should not miss when you visit Hualien. Compared with sea kayaking, river kayak touring is the perfect choice for leisurely paddling without motion sickness. The water is not deep, even if you don’t know how to swim, you will definitely enjoy it. You can control your canoe at a cosy pace when you paddling, being carried along by the current. Sprays will splash on the crystal clear water when you paddle, and the scenery is impressive while passing by some rapid currents; at the same time, the magnificent landscape will keep evolving on your way of kayaking in the sometimes gentle and sometimes rapid currents.

That’s why river kayaking will become both the most unforgettable and relaxed experience for you in Hualien and deserved you to come and join us!
