Welcome to winding river canoe

What we do

Winding River Canoe is a Devon based canoe company specialising in guided canoeing trips on the River Dart (South Devon), the River Wye (Hereford/Welsh border), and Scotland. The aim of these trips is to give you a break from your busy life, to relax, go slow, and to experience the magic of the river world. You don't even need to know how to canoe as most of our trips are suitable for novices. The basics are easy to learn and you'll soon be paddling in a straight(ish) line! Our experienced river guides are not only fully qualified British Canoe Union instructors, but also friendly and accommodating, with an intimate knowledge of the river.

How it works

You can either:

  • book on one of the calendar trips - Choose from one of the trips above and then select the date you want. This is a great option if the dates suit you and you are happy to meet new people.
  • book as a private group (six people minimum) you can choose your own dates (subject to availability), and location - River Dart (Devon), Wye Valley (Welsh border), or even Scotland! This is a great option for groups of families and friends; for reunions, get togethers, and celebrations where you want to preserve the intimacy of your group. To make an enquiry about booking a private trip just visit the type of trip above and then click on "Book a Private Trip" and then give us some information about your group and let us know what sort of experience you are looking for. We are happy to adapt trips to suit your own requirements to make your experience truly unique and memorable.
