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.
