Kayak & Equipment Hire

Kayak Hire on Llyn Padarn with Boulder Adventures.

Kayak hire Llyn Padarn, Llanberis, Snowdonia

Sit on top kayaks are £25/single or £50/double for a 3 hour period which should be plenty of time to explore the lake. Typically kayaks are available for collection from 9am, latest return time 6pm, although we are happy to discuss arrangements outside these hours with advance notice.

Included in the hire:

  • Sit on top kayak

It is best to pre book and certainly advisable to contact us for availability and opening times prior to traveling as the water sports centre is not always staffed.

To book please email with number of boats required, date and collection time. We will reply with payment details if we have availability or suggest closest alternative option.

For pre booking payment can be made by bank transfer or credit/debit card.

Booking on the day by credit/debit cards only.

For any equipment hire you be asked to leave your credit/debit card and photo ID with us for the duration of the hire. You will also be asked to pre-authorise payment for any overdue, lost or damaged equipment.
