Although canoe is still used as a means of transportation in different locations around the world, it has become a popular sport today. Canoeing, which is a kind of rowing sport, is an activity that has been popular in our country since the 90's but is still developing.
One of the most important routes in our country is in Kaş. Sea canoe tours in Kaş are unique in the world in terms of the ancient and natural beauties you will witness while canoeing. You can get detailed information on the subject from Xanthos sea kayaking page and Xanthos team .
Canoe is a small boat with both heads pointed. The athlete moves the canoe by kneeling or sitting on an open or closed deck canoe using a single-wing paddle. It can be done with one person or with two or more people. It can also be used with canoes, sails or various motors that are moved by muscle power, often using oars.
Canoes, which were first used by indigenous tribes as a means of transportation, became a sport in the 1860s. John McGregor, a Scottish lawyer, athlete, traveler, and philanthropist, designed a variety of canoes with decks and sails, and in 1873 founded the first canoe club (British Royal Canoe Club). In 1924, canoeing was recognized as an Olympic sport for the first time, and competitions were held at the Olympic games in Paris that year.
Today, canoeing is done in different ways as sprint canoe, river canoe (canoe slalom), marathon canoe and freestyle canoe. Competitions are generally held in still water canoeing, river canoeing and marathon canoeing branches.
Although canoeing seems like a calming and peaceful activity, it can be done as an exciting nature sport with a high tempo, full of adrenaline. There are canoe clubs and canoeing activities in almost every city where the river, lake or sea is located. Turkey has many of the locations that can be done in the canoeing. Canoeing is actively practiced in 18 provinces in our country. Canoeing is possible in the provinces of Antalya, Muğla, Rize, Trabzon, Sakarya, Kocaeli, Istanbul, Erzincan, Erzurum and Van. In addition, Kayseri Zamantı River, Artvin Coruh River and Fırtına Creek in Rize are suitable points for canoeing during the summer months.
