A magical overnight adventure on the River Dart for adults and kids.
The Dart river valley is bursting with life and vitality, its beauty unspoiled and its waters unpolluted. Travel down and back up the beautiful river Dart in open canoes, soak in the atmosphere of dusk, firelight, stars and stories before camping on the riverbank. Includes campfire supper and breakfast, nocturnal wildlife and storytelling.
We provide canoes, all canoeing equipment and teach all the necessary skills. No previous experience of canoeing is necessary, although participants must be able to swim.
