The Plan

Two day canoe and wild camp adventure. Enjoy the majestic tranquillity of the Medway river. Once out of Tonbridge we paddle through the meadows of the Medway Valley, with no roads in sight. The quiet pace of the river is perfect for observing nature and wildlife on the river. You can also fly down through the locks on the river using the canoe passes to give you a short burst of white water.

Camp on a river island in a Tipi with a wood burning stove to heat the space and an open fire. If you feel more adventurous you can sleep under a tarp. Share an evening meal cooked over the fire to give you energy for the next day's paddle. A chance to stargaze and experience the splendour of nature away from the lights and noise of the city.

Learn basic canoeing skills and also the lore of camp craft, from knot tying to fire lighting with feather sticks.


The Paddling

No experience necessary but some level of fitness recommended. Day one is 13km which takes around 5 hours of paddling with a break for lunch. Day two is 15km which takes around 6 hours of paddling with a break for lunch.
