River Tamar Guided Canoe Trips
Canoe the Tamar with us on our guided canoe trips on the scenic and historic Tamar valley River! The river Tamar separates the counties of Devon and Cornwall. It’s a fantastic way to explore this area of natural beauty. Our guided trips will give you an opportunity to take in some amazing views, spot a rich variety of wildlife and see some of the historic workings in the area.
We will be travelling in open Canadian canoes; this is a fun and relaxing way to explore this region. Canoeing is a fun activity for all abilities and ages to enjoy
Whilst on the water we have seen a great variety of wildlife such as herons, seals, salmon leaping from the river, otters, birds of prey and more. This experience is a perfect way to explore the region and is suitable for private bookings, hen or stag events, birthdays or just to treat yourself.
