Hire a Canoe Wild Camping

Day 1

Meet us in Montford Bridge near Shrewsbury, where you can leave your car. We will issue kit, barrels and talk you through the route and how to paddle your canoe.

Enjoy a leisurely couple of hours canoeing 7 miles downstream to our wild campsite. Set up camp, get a fire going, gaze at the stars…

Day 2

Take the opportunity to rustle yourself up a nice breakfast and bask in the peace and quiet of the morning.

Shorter distance to cover (5 miles) so take your time packing up camp and then meander downstream to Frankwell in the centre of Shrewsbury, arriving around lunchtime.

We will then drive you back to Montford Bridge if you have left a car there.

What to expect

This is your chance to go full Bear Grylls! You could even collect driftwood along the way to make a camp fire and put your bushcraft skills to the test. Keep it simple and pack just the essentials you need to eat, drink and sleep—washing is optional!

The most important thing to note is that you will need to take your own drinking water as there is no tap on site.

Nothing more to pay

There are no additional camping, parking or launching fees to pay. These are already included in the price for this trip.

We provide the canoe/paddles/buoyancy aids/barrels/dry bags but don’t forget to bring everything else with you.

To make life a little easier we have the following optional extras that can be selected at checkout: Firewood Bundle, Pre-Pitched Tent.

Basic packing list

  • Tent, sleeping bag and mat
  • Food for the evening and morning
  • Small stove, pan, utensils, crockery, cutlery
  • Water for drinking, cooking & washing
  • Spare clothes

At the campsite

There is a fire pit and a shelter, plus we have built a long-drop toilet at the wild campsite, so no need to worry about digging a hole in the woods!

Remember there is no water tap and no bins, so bring what you need with you and take whatever you don’t away.

A weekend of adventure

In summary we had an excellent time. The staff were very informative, professional and polite. The equipment was excellent and clean and the campsite was basic yet perfect for the wild camping experience.

Fully recommend this experience - You won’t be disappointed.

Me and my son really enjoyed our adventure.
The campsite which we had to ourselves was peaceful and great for star gazing on a clear night. We would definitely do this again
