Canoe & Camp River Tweed Adventure Weekend

£165 per person. Secure your spot with a £50 deposit.

A wonderful canoe adventure along the River Tweed. Wild-camping, wildlife spotting and campfire dining!

Bring together family and friends for a fantastic fun adventurous camping and canoe weekend. Setting off from Peebles in the Scottish Borders, you’ll spend the day paddling along this magnificent river, taking in the beautiful sights. Viewing a location from this perspective is pretty special, and it soon becomes apparent why so many people choose to spend their leisure time paddling!

You’ll spend a night camping at a secluded spot, where you’ll be dished up a campfire dinner and will enjoy a cheeky glass of wine or two.

Day two will have you waking up at sunrise and having a cooked breakfast on the riverbank before setting off to start another glorious day. You’ll finish your journey close to the quaint little village of St Boswells, located south side of the river.
