Set your sights high with this stunning 14 km canal and river escape day. On this adventure you will glide along one of the oldest stretches of canal in England, the Somerset Canal. If it’s wow factor you’re after then our paddle over and under the incredible architecture of the Dundas and Avoncliff aqueducts will have you camera snapping for sure!
