Stag Weekends

Kayaking or Canoeing Stag Weekends

Canoeing stag weekends are getting increasingly popular. They suit all abilities and ages so everyone can join in and have a great time. It is a fantastic outdoor activity without being too tiring and also a great way of blowing away the cobwebs of the night before. Give your Stag a day out to remember!

Canoeing stag weekends

We can offer half day paddles, full day trips or longer overnight trips (see the suggested itinerary below).  We now offer canoeing and kayaking on most rivers around the UK, so get in touch and find out what we can offer for your hen party.

The most popular river for canoeing stag weekends is the river Wye and here we can offer canoeing or kayaking from a range of great locations all the way down it’s length. Click here to find out more about the trips we offer on the river Wye.
