Inclusive of VAT. An additional 5% online booking fee is charged by our booking system provider.

Difficulty Level 4 of 5We 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 trip is rated 4/5 partly because you will be required to negotiate a section of tree-lined faster-moving water but mostly due to the stamina required to cover this distance on a stand-up paddle board.

Prior paddle boarding experience is required. You must be able to paddle in a straight line, make turns, and get back on the board.

About this route

Montford Bridge to Shrewsbury is a great route for paddleboarders looking for an all-day river trip. This section of the River Severn has a couple of easy-to-navigate faster-flowing sections mixed with an ever changing view of rolling hills, forests and large country estates to keep the route exciting. You will be paddling with the current downstream into the heart of Shrewsbury.

Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife along this route‚ÄĒfrom fish jumping out of the water, to buzzards, herons, swans (maybe the black swan might make an appearance again this season!) and even kingfishers. The lucky few may even be graced with the presence of an otter or two!
