Paddle up to 125 miles by canoe, as you experience the thrill of navigating your way down Britain’s longest river. The Severn is the only river in England and Wales that you can do this distance as a self-guided adventure, suitable for all abilities. Also available as shorter stretches over 3, 4, 5 and 7 days.
It is a UK adventure like no other. Even if you’re a native to Shropshire you really won’t forget the variety of people you’ll meet, places to see and experience along the way. You really can’t get closer to nature than this. Immerse yourself in ever-changing countryside where no two days are the same, and explore timeless long stretches of the peaceful tranquil river. You will find real peace and quiet, perfect for getting away from it all. Take a break on a beach riverside, enjoy a picnic & soak in the serenity.
Explore areas of outstanding natural beauty, and see British wildlife up-close, from kingfishers and herons; to mink, otters, water voles and dragonflies. You’ll also be free to visit the historic riverside towns & cities dotted along the trip – we’ll point you to the abundance of great food and interesting things to see and do. You’ll take in spectacular local landmarks and paddle right underneath the world-famous bridge in the breath-taking Ironbridge Gorge.
