Need a guide?

We offer a variety of guided tours, ranging from 3 hours through to a full day (6hrs). These are for groups only and a member of The Paddle Company team will join you throughout this adventure. We set off from The Henny Swan, down river to Bures. This will take us down river for about 3 hours, where we will see parts of the countryside you will never see by car of foot. If you would prefer the longer tour, we can then keep going down to Nayland., this is approx. 6 hours paddling. The guide will take a selection of drinks and biscuits to enjoy on route. We will then be met by another one of our team to collect the equipment and to get you back to your cars.
