This is a mini-wilderness adventure and absolutely perfect for quality time with your adventurous child or partner!
This action packed activity day is designed to equip you with all the skills you need for safe canoe trips with friends or family. We start with some basic canoe skills to get you going in a straight line. Then we take a break from canoeing and have a go at shelter building, axe throwing, fire starting with spark & steel and cooking up a brew or spot of lunch. Then we are off on a 2 1/2 - 3 hour return paddle to Flatford Mill. Expect some ducking and diving around or over natural tree obstacles.
£55 per person based on a minimum of 4. Or book your own unique day for 12 in the summer holiday from £45 per person. (Groups of up to 24 are also possible, email for price.)
Dates for 2018, once a group of 4 book their chosen dates, other pairs can join. Dates will be published here.
