RIVER Tweed canoe Trail Scottish Borders 


A great introduction to paddle sport, the boats are stable and spacious and having two people in each craft makes this a very sociable paddling experience.

A canoe session can be tailored to suit a variety of outcomes and allow us to develop team-related aims and objectives.

This can be achieved on a flat water lake or as part of a journey along the canal or river.
