Group Size Medium Group
Paddle through the heart of the Galloway Forest
Open Canoeing gives us the freedom to explore and allows us to access remote areas within the UNESCO Biosphere.
Canoe camping is as classic as it comes. Simply load up the canoes and off we go. The pristine lochs of the Galloway forest are surrounded by stunning forest covered hill sides which gives a true feeling of remoteness and tranquillity.
Our time served locations are within easy reach of Glasgow and Ayr from the north or Stranraer, Dumfries and Carlisle from the south. You don’t have to venture too far off the beaten track for a sense of wildness.
Within our 3 day 2 nights tour we offer bespoke overnight packages which are suitable for all abilities.
Our qualified and experienced instructors will support each day of the trip by transporting canoes to the venue and providing instruction to enable participants to gain confidence in paddling open canoes on a journey. Our team will also be on hand to choose a suitable location to set up a wild camp and cook a hearty meal.
Adventure Carrick will provide all equipment and instruction over the duration of the trip.
Your Open Canoe trip pack is downloadable on the home page or we can send via email. To discuss your next adventure simply call us on 01465 710077 or drop us a line at [email protected]
