Training Centers

Nelo’s goal is always to get as close as possible to the athletes, to better understand their wishes and needs.

Being Portugal one of the few countries in Europe where one can paddle all year with comfort added together with the most successful kayak company, than Portugal has to be one the best places in the world for winter paddling, and that is why we decided to create a service that up to the expectations of our athletes.

The idea is to give the athletes:

  1. Top of the range facilities;
  2. An affordable price;
  3. A place where our boats can be tested near us and adjustments can be done;
  4. Tour them to our Factory, to show them our process and technology.

In the past 4 seasons we had more than 800 athletes from all over the world visiting us, including:

  1. All the single Olympic Champions from Beijing and Athens;
  2. A lot of young talents still working their way to the top;
  3. Some not so young, just looking for a relaxed week doing their favourite sport in a nice location with awesome equipment.

Nelo has at the moment two training centers, offering different experiences:
