Off Grid Canoe and Camping Experience Launches
24 Jun 2021
by Cathy Block

Holidays of any sort are hard to organise at the moment with restrictions changing all the time, so why not take a holiday right here in beautiful Shropshire?

Hire a Canoe has opened bookings for a brand new canoe and camping package perfect for staycations in Shropshire. The three-day canoe trip includes two nights of camping in pre-pitched luxury bell tents. 

The off grid adventure incorporates a 25 mile canoe trip from Llandrinio to Shrewsbury over three days. Bookings have been released with limited availability over the summer months, with only one group able to enjoy the experience at a time.

The first day of the trip covers 10 miles from Llandrinio to Shrawardine, with the option to stop off and enjoy the view and refreshments at the Royal Hill pub along the way. Each night there is a pre-pitched bell tent, sleeping mats, campfire area, long-drop toilet, and shelter waiting for you so you can pack lightly! The second day covers another 10 miles via Montford Bridge, where thirsty paddlers can stop at the Wingfield Arms pub for more sustenance. The second-night stopover has an optional addition of a gourmet BBQ beef package with zero food miles, provided by Great Berwick Organics’ Longhorns for campers to cook and enjoy. On the third day participants canoe the final 5 miles to Shrewsbury. 

Danni Rex from Hire a Canoe said it is the perfect trip for frustrated adventurers unable to go abroad this summer. She said, “We think our off grid camping trip is ideal for anyone desperate for a unique holiday with minimal packing required!

“This is a rare opportunity to stay on private farmland that is not usually open to the public. The off-grid sites are exclusive, wild and remote, with just the essentials you need for a night of camping. Canoeing down the River Severn allows you to see Shropshire from a whole new perspective and lets you truly appreciate the sights and back to nature culture that Shropshire offers.”

The package will be available to book until the end of September for groups of up to eight people for family holidays, friends getaways or team building. It is recommended for ages 10 and over, although it is possible to bring younger children with some additional measures put in place. Dogs are also welcome but they will need to stay on leads at the campsites due to nearby livestock.
