Kayak/canoe trip

Post by thr33k » Fri Jul 05, 2013 4:09 pm

Hi all,

I want to go on a long(ish) river trip on a canoe or kayak but don't know where to go! I'm based in the North West, near Clitheroe but am willing to travel reasonably far if I have to so if anyone can point me in the right direction that'd be good. Also, I don't have a kayak/canoe yet and I don't think I'd fit one on my car so if I could hire one at the place that would be perfect!

You don't say in your post what sort of experience you have in either canoe or kayak.

You may already know but you have a great canoe/kayak club right on your doorstep in Chatburn they meet on Saturdays they coach both craft and supply all the equipment you would need. It may be worth contacting them.

If you don't need coaching you would get some great advice on local and distant paddle spots.
