Overview

Grab a paddle and head down stream while soaking in the beautiful Shropshire countryside with this Canadian Canoeing Adventure Day for Two experience.

Aboard a Canadian style canoe, you will paddle along the longest river in Britain, The River Severn, which winds through one of the most beautiful and un-spoilt counties in the country, which offers fantastic views and is teeming with wildlife.

Once you arrive at your location, you will receive a safety briefing and learn about the best canoeing techniques to help make your experience as enjoyable as possible. You will travel 6 miles from Bridgnorth to Arley, where you will stop for lunch and have the opportunity to purchase food at the nearby pub or, if the weather is nice, bring a picnic and eat outdoors. In the afternoon you continue 4.5 miles downstream to Arley where your return journey will be on the Severn Valley Steam Railway, which delivers you back to the train station at Bridgnorth.

Will we be too old for this adventure

This adventure was bought for as as a 50th wedding anniversary present. Both being pensioners but reasonably healthy we wondered if we would manage to keep up the pace for a day. We need not have worried we were well capable of doing this and what a wonderful day it was. It was a small group of just 3, canoe's of a similar age group and we became friends quickly the weather was exceptional but even had it not been i still think the day would have been as good. 3 Hrs canoeing in the morning and a stop at a nice pub for lunch. 1 1/2 Hrs in the afternoon to the final stop and to catch a train back to our start point. Slight disappointment that the train was not steam...however we could have waited a little longer for a steam train. However the carriages were old stock as were the station details bringing back some wonderful memories. A super day out.

I can understand why people return year after year. It's so much fun, not too strenuous and in beautiful surroundings. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Personally, I'd take a picnic next time. This is no reflection on the food provided, which was fine, but the long queue to get it meant we felt a little rushed.

Although we had to travel from Scotland... it was well worth the time spent on the motorway. The owners did a wonderful job of providing support and their safety demonstration definitely ensured we were well prepared. We want to give a special shout out to Jeremy for making us feel so comfortable and for being a positive addition to our day... Which just happened to be his Birthday.

Such good fun, canoeing down the beautiful River Severn. Richard & Jeremy were so helpful and laid back and let you do your own thing. It has introduced us to a beautiful area of the UK we might not otherwise have discovered.

We have done this once before and loved it so much that we chose it again. It is a lovely peaceful way of travelling down the river, if slightly tiring if like us you are less fit than you would like! The pub stop for lunch is a very welcome break with lovely food.

The day was well organised and supported. The timings and directions provided proved accurate and the lunch time stop included a good choice of drinks and tasty hot buffet lunch. My wife and I have a little previous experience but this was not essential to enjoy the day. The section of river is quiet and rural and full of wildlife. The return trip on the Steam train rounded off a great day.
