Paddle your own canoe!
Adventure Okehampton offer canoeing on both rivers and lakes in Devon. It’s best to start at our lakes, as our Canadian canoes take two adults (or an adult and up to three children), but you’ll need to work together, as otherwise you’ll go round in circles! As we have our own lakes about 7 miles from the hostel, with sole use, you won’t bump into anyone else. You can book individual places on our Lakes Day during schools holidays on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
If you’d like something more challenging, then book a place on our River trip, which usually runs on the Exeter Loop (canal and river) on a Monday during school holidays.
Looking to progress your canoeing skills, then we also run BCU accredited courses at our centre. More advanced courses run during the winter months, and will be dependent on water levels in the rivers.
We also offer a series of days during the summer holidays, for beginners courses.
If you’ve got a group of friends or family, or are an organised group, then you can book a session, day or courses on any date that suits you, subject to a minimum group size of 6.
