What is Open Canadian Canoeing?
Canoeing is an activity given to us by the American Indians. Open Canadian Canoe's are a great way to explore rivers, lakes and waterways. As an activity for groups or individuals canoeing is a really fun way to enjoy the outdoors.
This activity is ideal when you want to take that little bit of extra load. Using large open canoes you can pack for an overnight trip or just go for a fun day or half-day
Using a specially designed sailing rig enables you to incorporate sailing into your canoe experience, just sit back and let the wind do the work.
Reviews for Canoeing “Canoeing & Gorge walking adventure!”
We met Dave bright and early on the Saturday morning for canoeing on Coniston water which is where the adventure began!
Dave's experience ,knowledge an humour put us immediately at ease and set us up for a fantastic morning on the lake. We were also joined by little Quackers the 1 legged duck who we all loved !
In the afternoon we geared up to go gorge walking. This was an amazing experience for all ( even the nervous ones of the group!) Dave kept everyone working together and despite being freezing cold he managed to keep us all laughing !
All in all it was a great experience and a big thank you to Dave for making it such a memorable day !
Also a Big thanks to adventure 21 for helping us arrange our belated Christmas gifts!X
