The Plan

The ideal tonic to a busy life! Paddle downstream on the tranquil wooded river of the Great Ouse. You see the world from a whole different perspective when you're on a river. Experience the beautiful countryside, the Willows dipping their branches in the water, birds and fish darting out from the reed beds on the banks.


Enjoy a picnic lunch on the riverside with a refreshing wild swim if you fancy it, then back in the boats for the afternoon, with a well earned meal in the pub at the end of the day.

 

The Paddling

No experience necessary but some level of fitness recommended. The route is 15km which takes around 6 hours of paddling with a break for lunch.
 

 

What's included

All canoeing and camping equipment including canoes, buoyancy aids, paddles, waterproof jackets if needed, dry bags to keep your personal things in.
 

 

What to bring and what to wear

Comfortable active wear for paddling. Water bottle. Suncream.
Swimming stuff if you fancy a dip.

 

Any questions?

 

"A great day out, with a knowledgeable and friendly guide, along a very pretty, picture-postcard stretch of river, ending at a lovely little riverside pub. "
