Kayaks (similarly to canoes, but with lots of little differences) are small, look rather fragile and not very trustworthy. But appearance aside, kayaks are really one of the best types of small boats you can wish for, and their success is obvious seeing as they haven been used by people for thousands of years. Kayaks were invented by the Inuit and were initially made from animal skin, but nowadays they have spread throughout the world and they have been modified and even improved in lots of ways.  So if you are ready to get really close to water, paddling peacefully or hurdling over rocks, here are some of the best kayaking destinations in the world.
