Qué harás

We meet at 10 am at my woodland, Coed Obry, 1 mile north of Penrhyndeudraeth where there is secure parking. We carry out medical checks and get to know each other, fit buoyancy aids, paddles and put our valuables in dry bags. We then drive 5 mins to the Afon Dwyryd Canoe access point and unload the canoes. After a safety briefing we paddle upstream for 1 ½ hours (the flow is weak), learning canoe techniques: the J-stroke, trim, poling, tracking and lining. We encounter wildlife along this stretch, buzzards, herons, kingfishers, and a variety of ducks and geese. From 13.00-13.45 we get out at a secluded beach or quiet spot on the bank for lunch which is cooked on a portable BBQ. Lunch includes vegetarian burgers, flat breads, salad, various dips, crisps, chocolate or cereal bar and hot or cold drinks. After lunch we paddle back to our access point and return to Coed Obry by 4pm to unload canoes and have tea/coffee.
You will leave having learned some canoe skills and carried out a leisurely canoe journey in this beautiful part of Snowdonia, you will have encountered wildlife along the river and in the wood and have been guided by a canoe guide who is a retired Professor of Physical Geography & Outdoor Education.

Dónde irás

We paddle on the mid-section of the beautiful unspoilt Afon Dwyrhyn, a river around 10-15m wide where we join it. Downstream of where we paddle it becomes tidal and flows into the sea at Porthmadog. We meander through farmland bounded by steep forested slopes. We pass below Plas Tan-y-Bwlch, the Snowdonia National Park study centre, and we’re likely to encounter wildlife along this stretch, buzzards, herons, kingfishers, ducks and geese.

100% personable. 100% hospitable. For the price I paid I got everything I wanted. Tim is well experienced and an all round great guy. Feel very privileged to have stumbled across, what was to my surprise, a new business for Tim and his family. I have no doubt it will continue to please others as much as it pleased me. Felt safe the entire time and in capable hands. The views and the experience was fantastic as well as the hospitality I received on arrival. 5 stars!
