Description

ADVENTURE TRIPS 

2 hour Trip from Avon Valley - Adults £35 pp, 12 yrs and under £20 pp

Join us for a fabulous 2-hour trip along the River Avon on-board one of our amazing Katakanus.

With seating for up to 6 people and a maximum load capacity of 450 kg, Katakanu is a revolutionary kayak encapsulating 800 litres of air, allowing you to stay high and dry all year round.


You’ll set out from Avon valley Adventure & Wildlife Park and be guided by one of our qualified instructors, learning to paddle as a team as you head towards Swineford Lock.

At the Lock you’ll be invited to have a go at operating the lock system and if you’re lucky you may even be able to assist one of the narrow boats through before heading back.


Along the route, keep a watchful eye out for some of our local residents such as swans, kingfishers, herons, cormorants, ducks, woodpeckers, geese, dragonflies, damselflies, falcons and even a rather shy pair of otters!
