Description

Medway Canoe and Camp Trip

DURATION: 2 days, 1 night

START POINT: Tonbridge Station Saturday 10am. Finish at Maidstone Station, Sunday afternoon.

THE PLAN: Two days canoeing on the Medway river. One night wild camping on one of the many islands along the river. Enjoy the majestic tranquillity of the Medway river. Once out of Tonbridge we paddle through the meadows of the Medway Valley, with no roads in sight. The quiet pace of the river is perfect for observing nature and wildlife in and around the river banks. You can also fly down through the locks on the river using the canoe passes to give you a short experience of white water.

Camping is in a Tipi with a wood burning stove to heat the space and to cook on, and an open fire. If you feel more adventurous you can sleep under a tarp. Share an evening meal cooked over the fire and on the wood burning stove to give you energy for the next day’s paddle. A chance to stargaze and experience the splendour of nature away from the lights and noise of the city.

WHAT IS INCLUDED: Learn basic canoeing skills and also the lore of camp craft, from knot tying to fire lighting with feather sticks. All food, canoeing and camping equipment is included. Equipment includes buoyancy aids, waterproof jackets if needed, dry bags to keep your personal things in and paddles, sleeping bags and therma rests. Food includes lunch and supper on Day one, breakfast and lunch on Day two, and energy snacks.

No experience necessary. Some level of fitness recommended. Day one is 13km which takes around 5 hours of paddling with a break for lunch. Day two is 15km which takes around 6 hours of paddling with a break for lunch.

WHAT TO WEAR: Comfortable active wear for paddling. Warm jumper and hat for the evening. Overnight bag. Water bottle.
