Canoeing is a fantastic way to explore the waterways of Snowdonia and North Wales whether that be lake or river. Snowdonia has a large choice of lakes and touring rivers with amazing views.
The canoe allows great versatility. It can be paddled solo or in pairs and can be rafted together for a stable and sociable experience allowing up to 6 people to paddle together. This stability even allows a sail to be safely rigged if paddling becomes too tiring! They can also carry loads of kit allowing overnight adventures and plenty of food! We offer two types of canoe course:
Menai Straits Mini Canoe Expedition
Running between Anglesey and the mainland of North Wales, the Menai Straits is a unique stretch of tidal water, with a change in direction every 6 hours or so!
With a favourable tide, a day trip along the Straits is a reasonable proposition, many kms can be covered with relative ease.
The stretch between the 2 bridges, the Swellies has a fearsome reputation, complex tides, whirlpools and boils - all add a little spice to the experience! Correct route choice, timing and fair weather however make a passage through the Swellies more manageable.
