West Wales Grade 2 Rivers, Easter Bank Holiday Weekend

West Wales Grade 2 Rivers, Easter Bank Holiday Weekend

The 4-day weekend open canoe trips aim to explore some of the grade 2 West Wales rivers on the western side of the Cambrian Mountains which flow into Cardigan Bay. The exact rivers will depend on the water levels in the various rivers. Should there not be enough water in the rivers to make river trips a viable option, the tides are suitable for some of the classic open water journeys on salt water.

OCA Ardèche Descent 2017

As in previous years, Ian Dennies and I are running a four-day trip on the Ardèche from 29th May-2th June.
It's a superb trip: paddling through a remarkable gorge and having a night's bivouac on the national park.
Given the nature of the river, there are limited places. We will work on a first-come, first-served basis.
