Join us for a magical evening on the River Dart! The evening paddle by canoe is an opportunity to have an unusual evening where you slow down and experience the natural world on the water as it moves from day to night. The fading light... bird-sound, silence, bats, moonlight, darkness. We set off in the daylight and paddle for an hour or so upstream, gathering firewood on the way. Pitching up on the river bank, some hearty soup around the fire, and if our storyteller is on board, a river tale or two. We paddle back as night falls to the sound of the owls, and only our night vision to guide us. No previous canoeing experience required.
"With the minimum of fuss, Nick enabled us to explore the enticing beauty of the Dart.The shimmering reflections, the sighting of a kingfisher, the ease with which a tasty supper was served from a firebowl & watching the storyteller's face in the firelight as he recounted the very ancient & fearsome myth. Then the silent paddle homewards, feeling liberated by our night eyes ability to follow the silvery pathway between the shadows. Back in the city we will always remember our venture into the owl's domain..Thank you!" (Sheilah - London)
"Thank you Winding River for such an excellent evening trip up the dart!
Canoeing back in the twilight with bats skimming the water and owls silently flying by, after food and storytelling around the fire... I couldnt imagine a better way to spend your evening... when's the next one?" (Joseph - Devon)
