The River Tweed forms part of the natural boundary between England and Scotland. It flows eastwards from its source in the Lowther Hills of Scotland, through the southern uplands of both countries, before finally emptying into the North Sea. The River Tweed is a captivating waterway that weaves together the natural, historical, and cultural aspects of the borderlands between England and Scotland. Its beauty and significance make it a cherished landmark for both locals and visitors alike.


Saturday – After meeting at our expedition base in Newcastle, we’ll set off on our canoeing adventure. Our team will help you pack your canoe and give you the skills you need to navigate down rapids. Hopefully, we’ll spot some local otters as we paddle down the river. We’ll stop for a hot lunch on the riverbank, before camping at our remote wild camp. The team will put up tents and the guilds will have the kettle and cakes ready for us. Our team will have the fire ready in the evening for cooking our meal under the stars with a few drinks and chatting about our day on the river.

Sunday – Wake up and enjoy your breakfast, while relaxing by the water. We’ll pack up camp and load the canoes for day two down the river Tweed. The scenery will change as we head down towards the sea, but it’s all very easy going with views of Berwick-upon-Tweed while we pass through the iconic bridges. We may even be lucky enough to have an escort down the river from the local seal colony that hangs out near the bridges. The team will cook you a hot lunch overlooking the city walls. We’ll get you back to the minibus around 2 pm on Sunday, after a stunning couple of days on the river.

    This was good! From the drive up to Coldstream where the canoes were ready for us with tents and sleep mats already packed, to practising basic canoeing skills, especially for the little bits of white water that we found – they sounded so loud as we approached them but were really tiny when we got to them. The meals were so good – hearty and tasty, just what was needed after a couple of hours on the water. It was cold, a bit breezy and it rained, hailed and sleeted on us too, but we did get some sunshine too – be prepared for everything! We had the choice of snuggling up to our buddy for warmth in one tent, or trusting that all the thermal gear you have is good enough in a tent on your own. I can really recommend having a dryrobe to bury yourself under.
    Our guides have been on many different trips of different types – their experience is wide and varied and they just ooze confidence and competence. They were both tremendously fit and strong and carried my dry bag for me in one arm with another bag under the other arm. Nothing was too much trouble for them – we were so well looked after – and taught how to canoe, to read the water and respect the environment. I’ll be back. Thanks Dave and Chris
