Type of event Canoe

Join Winding River Canoe for a magical evening on the River Dart! 

The evening paddle by canoe is an opportunity to slow down, switch gear and experience the natural world on the water as it moves from day to night. The fading light, bird-song, bats, moonlight, dusk. After a short briefing, introductions, and a little canoeing tuition we set off in the daylight and paddle our canoes for a while (usually about 90 mins). Pitching up on the river bank, we'll gather around the fire and sup hot chocolate and eat cake whilst we are entertained by a river tale or two from our on-board story-teller. As the final light is fading we'll then hop back in the canoes and paddle to the finish point (30 mins) where the trip ends about 9.15pm. No previous canoeing experience required.
