A not-to-be missed iconic outrigger canoe race to London's most famous landmark.

Then, there was the Statue of Liberty.

There was even the Eiffel Tower!

Now, for the first time ever, you can take part in a one-of-a-kind outrigger canoe race to London's Palace of Westminster -- home to the Houses of Parliament and the mighty Big Ben.
