We have graded all of the routes and trips we offer across our various locations on a relative difficulty scale of 1 to 5 (from easy to moderately difficult).
This experience is suitable for beginners and is rated 1/5 because the section of river you will be paddling on is wide and slow moving.
Prior canoeing experience is not required. You will be given a safety brief and an introduction on how to steer and propel your canoe.
If you can swim and follow instructions then you will be fine!
We decided to book this very last minute whilst on honeymoon in Shropshire. We are so glad we did! It was very easy to book a time slot online, and good value for money to get 2 hours on the water. The leader made us feel at ease and ensured we had fun with no stress or worry. We got in the water and were able to explore up and down stream of Shrewsbury which was beautiful. We loved it! Thank you!
Canoed on the river with 35 kids as part of their final year at school celebrations and end of exams - they had enormous fun. Hire a canoe were great - well organised, all necessary equipment and a friendly and helpful team. It's a great way to see Shrewsbury from a different viewpoint with newly hatched ducks and cows drinking at the banks!
Excellent outfit with great boats and brilliant staff. Our trip was expertly organised, which made it fun and easy. The staff are relaxed and fun and made sure that we had fun too!
We also watched part of a paddle boarding group lesson/trip they were doing which looked amazing. Next time!
I would definitely recommend this fabulous experience.
