Canoeing, £25-£40



Half Day Canoeing
Join us as we present the quiet and secretive Teifi Gorge, an excellent and rare example of a post glacial gorge cut deep into a large slate outcrop. We start at the entrance to the gorge and paddle up through the wilderness to Cilgerran Castle and rapids at the other end. The area includes a variety of habitats from ancient woodland, river ecosystems, estuary, salt marsh and they support a huge range of wildlife including otters, red deer, dragonflies, reptiles, salmon, oystercatchers, red kites and kingfishers. Our trip isnt all about wildlife, as we cruise back downstream we'll come to the Grade I-II rapids, created by the slate quarrying in the gorge.

Full Day Canoeing
We start the day at the tidal limit at 10 once we've loaded up and made a plan for lunch and refreshment stops we jump into the boats and enter the hidden and natural gorge. Enjoy the breathtaking scenery being carried by the river past derelict quarries and ancient oak and beech forests. If we are lucky we may see otters but kites, buzzards and kingfishers are a regular sight. As we speed through the straightforward rapids at the end of the gorge we enter the open estuary as the river prepares to meet the sea. We can stop here for the Glasshouse cafe on the nature reserve or call into Cardigan. We'll navigate the various rapids through the tall reeds of the marsh, before arriving at the historic market town of Cardigan. Stop for lunch at one of the many cafe's or pubs in this town, or join us for lunch in a riverside cafe on teifi wharf for £6. As we gently cruise down to the fishing village of Saint Dogmaels, see the old ship building quays and more otters as the river turns to meet the sea. You will see geese, wading birds, cormorants, shoals of fish and wrecks before we pull in at around 15:30.
