Open Canoe Reviews

Open canoes are true adaptions of traditional designs which can date back to 8200BC. Although the designs and materials have changed quite a bit since then (thank god!) the idea still remains.

An open top craft, paddled with a single-blade paddle from a kneeling position, it is a truly traditional experience and offers fantastic fun for families or individuals who can carry enough equipment for overnight stays!

    A stunning canoe. Space for 8+ plus kit and biscuits for a whole day on the river! We just had to take one out for a spin.
