  • We offer tailor made Stag and Hen canoe trips on the River Dart in Devon, or the River Wye in Herefordshire.

  • the venues we use are wild and unspoiled, away from road noise and towns, so you'll get a full nature immersion!

  • We offer different possibilities for different budgets. All of our trips involve canoeing as a major part of the experience.

  • you'll need a minimum of eight people in your group

  • Cost: This varies depending on what you have in mind and the number of participants.  Example: Starting at £40/person for a day of canoeing. £140/person for a weekend canoe camping, with evening BBQ and cooked breakfast. Minimum number 8 people.

The most popular format is to canoe to a river-side pub or beach for lunch, then continue to the evening camp spot where you can hang out around the campfire. We can also provide an evening activitysuch as learning some bushcraft skills**. Evening food or BBQ is provided. Next morning a cooked breakfast before loading the canoes and heading off down river for a few more miles to the end point. We usually begin saturday morning and finish by Sunday midday. Often people want to gather on the Friday evening as well so they are ready for the trip ton Saturday. We can help advise on accomadation if needed.

Please note that although we always do our best to stick to the plan that we come up with when you make your booking, we very occassionally, due to weather conditions, have to make some changes to your trip. 

**These can include bow-drill fire lighting, animal skinning, traditional axe/knife throwing, shelter building, cordage, wild food foraging, tracking and more... If you want an evening bushcraft session this is between £10-£20 per person extra.
