Yorkshire River Adventures is a family run activity centre providing great days out on the river.
We have a fleet of ‘Old Town’ Canadian canoes, specially designed for recreational paddling on the still waters of the rivers Ure, Swale and Ouse.
Whether you wish to spend a couple of hours paddling up and down our stretch of the Ouse or a more adventurous day out paddling from Boroughbridge downstream to our centre at Thorpe Underwood or even a weekend camping experience, we have it covered.
The river is a fantastic place to get away from the crowds and the noise of everyday life. It is full of wildlife, from swans and ducks to kingfishers, herons and even otters……we have them living with us at the centre!!
Take a picnic and enjoy one of the many beaches along the river bank or there are one or two great pubs to visit.
Have a couple of hours on the river simply paddling at your leisure. Take a picnic and enjoy the quiet and ….relax! Prices from £25.00
‘A half day outing’
Great for the whole family. Grab some lunch and set off up-stream or down and discover some of the local wildlife. Do some fishing but watch out for those big teeth on the pike! We can drop you up stream at Aldwark and allow yourselves to paddle gently down to the centre at Thorpe Underwood and then on to the lock at Linton. There is a pub here for refreshment and should you feel you’ve had enough, no problem, we’ll come and pick you up. Prices from £35.00
Why not take the whole day to get away from it all. No noise, no crowds and definitely no stress as you meander through the beautiful countryside. We set you off at Boroughbridge where you could stock up on supplies for a picnic or if you like we can do this for you. Or, why not stop at the Aldwark Arms pub for a leisurely lunch and then when you are full up, drift down to us at Thorpe Underwood to end the day. Prices from £50.00
