Enjoy the tranquil and beautiful surroundings of the Tamar Valley on a canoeing trip along the Tamar River, which creates the natural border between Devon and Cornwall.

Our guided canoeing trips in open-style Canadian canoes provides the perfect way to explore this stunning landscape of meandering river, steep wooded valleys, historic quays and viaducts.

The Tamar River provides a natural border between Devon and Cornwall, so canoeing here makes a great day out for anyone living or visiting these counties in the South West.

Canoeing on the River Tamar is a gentle and enjoyable outdoor activity, suitable for all types of groups from young families to large stag and hen groups. The canoe trips journey from the historic Quay at Cotehele up river, past the village of Calstock and into the wilds of the upper tidal limits.

As well as beautiful valley scenery, people on our canoeing trips regularly see all sorts of wildlife including seals, otters, kingfishers and herons.

All equipment is provided, including life jackets. No experience is necessary as you will be under the supervision of a qualified guide.
