Price for 1 participant

Canoeing is one of the oldest forms of transport and has stood the test of time, transforming from one of the main modes of travel to a leisure activity that provides great benefits. From great exercise to the fresh air of being outdoors, it's a quite liberating feeling to canoe the River Leam with nothing more than a paddle in hand and an experienced instructor in front. Once the basic skills have been demonstrated, practised and perfected - the fun of canoeing can really begin, taking you on a picturesque journey through the Victoria Gardens.

Once you have arrived and been welcomed to the centre your day will begin with a thorough safety briefing covering the techniques and safety aspects of canoeing. Once you have met your instructor it is time to get kitted out and take to the water! The Canoes are very stable and designed for tuition so you are unlikely to fall out unless you really try hard!  The session will take place on a calm stretch of the River Leam. You will learn how to control the boat in tandem crews so you can enjoy a river trip up though the Victorian Gardens and into the nature reserve. This experience will teach you the basics and whet your appetite for the next time!


If you enjoy the outdoors and adventure that this experience will make for the perfect day out. Or if you're looking to surprise a friend with a fantastic gift then Adult half day canoe experience is definitely the one!
