Welcome to Winding River Canoe

What we do

Winding River Canoe is a Devon based canoe company specialising in guided canoeing trips on the River Dart (South Devon), the River Wye (Hereford/Welsh border). We offer a variety of canoe trips all of which are suitable for novices. The basics are easy to learn and you'll soon be paddling in a straight(ish) line! Our experienced river guides are not only fully qualified British Canoe Union instructors, but also friendly and accommodating, with an intimate knowledge of the river. Our canoes are traditional Canadian canoes, and can carry up to four people each (depending on size and weight).

How it works

You can either:

  • book on one of the calendar trips - Choose from one of the trips above by clicking on the image, and then select the date you want. This is a great option if the dates suit you and you are happy to meet new people.
  • book as a private group For ready-made groups of AT LEAST 6 people or more you can choose your own dates (subject to availability), and location - River Dart (Devon), Wye Valley (Welsh border). Booking a PRIVATE TRIP is a great option for groups of families and friends; for reunions, get-togethers, and celebrations where you want to preserve the intimacy of your group.
