There is nothing like the feeling of having a river to yourself...
During the winter, once the crowds have left, the river is quiet and peaceful. Listen to the wildlife and the splash of the kayaks as you paddle along this beautiful stretch of the River Thames.
The Half Day Winter Kayak Adventure is approximately 3 hours long and runs daily at 10:30am. Group size can vary from 2-12 people.
We meet at Petersham Meadow steps on River Lane, Richmond, where you will get to know your highly experienced guide and the rest of your group. We will go over kayak safety, route and conditions and you will get to know your kayak.
We will be paddling 'up' and 'down' the river and all around the islands of the Thames. We will stop at a riverside pub or cafe for you to maintain energy while we paddle. While you are resting, watching the birds and river life and taking in the views from your kayak, your guide will tell you stories about the life and nature of this part of the river.
For this trip, it's not necessary to have any previous experience. 99% of our guests never kayaked before.
This is a short but fun filled experience for everybody!
