Wilderness Canoeing and Bush Craft Adventure

August 7, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - August 8, 2015 @ 8:15 pm

Guided Canoe trip river Tamar

We are excited to be working with our great friends at Serious Outdoor Skills to bring this new Canoe Adventure:

Your adventure will begin from Saltash where we will begin with a short safety brief. We will then pack and prepare for the journey up the beautiful River Tamar, with the destination of Cotehele Quay in our sights. The canoe journey is approximately 13 kilometers of stunning scenery. Here you will have the chance to take in some fantastic views and catch a glimpse of some great wildlife you may not have the chance to see very often.

Whilst on the canoe journey you will be taught how to navigate and control the craft and how to avoid and deal with emergencies on the water. We will find a quiet location to take a break on our way upstream, before we arrive at the quay and set off on foot for the 20 minute walk to our camp at Comfort Wood. As soon as we arrive we will be setting up camp. You will have the challenge of building your own shelter which, with weather permitting, you will be sleeping in for the night. Then, once you’re comfortable and happy, we will prepare for our evening meal, light fires for our camp and settle for the night.After a night under the stars we will start breakfast, you will have a go at making your own bread to accompany this. When breakfast is over, we will be carrying out some fun bushcraft sessions including, foraging, how to navigate, making traps and snares and learning how to find and make safe water. These activities will lead us up to lunch time where you will be preparing your own game to cook. After lunch we will spend the afternoon with a chilled wood carving session for a few hours you will get a chance to make something of your choice to take away with you. This could be a carved spoon, spatula, bow and arrow, mallet or anything else you fancy making. Unfortunately it will then be time to leave camp and head for the quay for our journey back, but it’s not over yet! We will launch early evening from Cotehele Quay with a estimated time of arrival at Saltash of around 8pm. On the river we will make a stop and take in the beautiful scenery before we finally reach our final destination.

Cost: £145 per person
