Wilderness Canoeing and Bushcraft Adventure
The wilderness canoeing and bushcraft adventure will begin from Weir Quay where we will start with a short safety brief. We will then pack and prepare for the journey up the beautiful River Tamar, with the destination of Cotehele Quay in our sights. The canoe journey is approximately 7 kilometers of stunning scenery. Here you will have the chance to take in some fantastic views and catch a glimpse of some great wildlife you may not have had the chance to see very often.
Whilst on the canoe journey you will be taught how to navigate and control the craft and how to avoid and deal with emergencies on the water. We will find a quiet location to take a break on our way upstream, before we arrive at the quay of Cotehele . As soon as we arrive we will be setting up camp. You will have the challenge of building your own shelter which, with weather permitting, you will be sleeping in for the night. Then, once you’re comfortable and happy, we will prepare for our evening meal, light fires for our camp and settle for the night.
After a night under the stars we will start breakfast, you will have a go at making your own bread to accompany this. When breakfast is over, we will be carrying out some fun bushcraft sessions including, foraging, how to navigate, wood carving and more .. Unfortunately it will then be time to leave camp and head for the quay for our paddle back. On the river we will make a stop and take in the beautiful scenery before we reach our final destination.
