River Tweed - Guided 3 Day Canoe Adventure

River Tweed - Guided 3 Day Canoe Adventure

The Scottish Borders for centuries were the sites of battles and raids, this trip takes us through both Scotland and England on one of Britain's best Rivers. Throughout the journey, we see the river banks change from winding fields to rocky outcrops and features ancient Ghillie huts.

Starting near Innerleithen, this river journey incorporates a mixture of rapids caulds and drops as well as peaceful paddling through stunning scenery and finishes in the Tweed Estuary at Berwick upon Tweed. We will camp on islands and at the riverside, where you can relax and enjoy the evening's peace quiet, and splendor.

There will be plenty of opportunities to improve your paddling skills with our qualified and experienced guides, who are eager to share their knowledge.


Day 1: Meet at Paxton House, near Berwick upon Tweed. We will issue equipment pack bags and then transfer to Innerleithen, where we start our paddle. Overnight we will be camping.

Day 2: Continue downstream towards the Northumberland Coast. Again we pass through open winding stretches of water, negotiate rapids, and caulds. Night 2 we hope to make it to Norham, where we will camp overnight on a small island.

Day 3 is the final leg, finishing in the estuary at Berwick, here we often see dolphins and seals playing in the river as well as local net fishermen, fishing from traditional rowboats for Salmon.
