Family Adventure

Open canoe or kayak river adventure just for your family

A ‘Made to Measure Adventure’ is a big part of my offer. I love working with family groups. From only two hours on a slow moving part of the lovely River Till or I can provide multi day trips on the beautiful River Tweed, up to grade 3 water in open canoes or kayaks. I can do a half day intro to rock climbing on the local sandstone outcrops. Check out the relevant activity page for more ideas.

I am perfectly located for canoeing if you are staying in Berwick upon Tweed, Wooler, Coldstream, Eyemouth or Kelso or anywhere in the North Northumberland or East Scottish Borders area.

Booking essential via Facebook or Email

Family challenge – Open canoeing on the River Till

Learn to:

Kayak or Canoe – I have a huge range of kayaks and canoes to try out before you buy your own. I am also happy to help you learn how to paddle your own craft and want to know more about the river and how to select a safe and suitable trip for you. If you are thinking of buying your own boat why not come and do an intro session to see which craft suits you best? Just drop me an email with your ideas and I am sure I can help you get the best fit.

Active 4 Seasons ‘Family Challenge’

If you are up in North Northumberland why not take the Active 4 Seasons Family Challenge? Prices are shown here and under 16’s go half adult price.

I can also cater for an extended family ‘get together’ and have organised a challenge for a family of 24 with a climbing challenge in the morning with a canoe challenge in the afternoon. There were two teams and the age range was over 4 generations with granny and grandad in their 70’s and the youngest on the water was 5!


“Dear Ollie,

Very many thanks for your contribution to our Family Gathering last week. The boys had a great time at Eyemouth and Thursday was a resounding success. “The best birthday ever” said Mum.”
