Paddling:

A multi day micro-adventure in the heart of the Forest of Dean. Escape the hustle and bustle of city life and reconnect with nature on our two day SUP expedition down the river Wye with an overnight camp next to the river. We will paddle for 4-5 hours each day with breaks and will be carrying all your own camping equipment on your board, you will get a real feel of expedition paddling. If you're thinking of going off and doing your own paddle boarding expeditions but are unsure how to pack, what to pack, how to plan an overnight paddle and are wanting to learn about how to keep yourself and others around you safe this is the trip for you.

Friday (10th May 2024):

Arrive any time after 16:00pm at the campsite. Once you've arrived we will help you setup your camp for the night and hand out any kit you are borrowing from us for the next couple of days. 

Saturday (11th May 2024)

This morning we will pack down camp and look at how we pack our boards with all our expedition gear. Once on the water we will run through how to control our fully loaded boards as we make our way down the river. We will arrive at our second campsite of the trip where we will setup camp for the night, before heading to the pub for an evening meal. On return we will relax by sitting next to a campfire.

Sunday (12th May 2024)

Final day of the trip. We plan to be off the water at the latest 15:00pm. Once we are off the water we will sort out the kit and reunite you with your car.

Accommodation:

Each night we will be camping at a campsite on the banks of the river Wye, where you will have access to basic bathroom facilities. 

Don’t own a tent? Not a problem, we have a few that can be borrowed (you will however need to bring your own sleeping bag and mat). Everyone will have access to their own tent unless they are from the same household and are happy to share together. Full kit list will be emailed to you after booking on.
