A unique opportunity for students to paddle along one of the classic waterways of the UK

An alternative to our Mountain Expeditions, our river journeys provide a unique opportunity for students to paddle along one of the classic waterways of the UK. Where they can stop for lunch breaks along the river banks & observe a variety of wildlife in its natural surroundings.

In addition to learning how to paddle and manage a 2 or 3 person canoe, students will have responsibility for planning and managing each day of their expedition.

These demanding expeditions encourage the development of leadership, teamwork & communication skills. As students learn how to adapt to their new environment they not only learn how to overcome adversity but also cultivate a sense of self-reliance, resilience and independence. The performance and safety of students will be carefully facilitated by our experienced leaders, review sessions will re-enforce the transferable life skills learnt and developed on the programme.

Ultimately though the expeditions are designed to be exciting, fun and rewarding Accommodation is a mix of camping and bunk barns depending on the itinerary

During each expedition students develop a range of transferable life skills, including;

  • Self and team resilience
  • Leadership & teamwork skills
  • Communication
  • Problem solving
  • Decision making
  • Fitness and nutrition
  • Time management
  • Environmental responsibility
