The River Teifi has some of the most breath taking , otherwise unreachable stretches in Wales. Heritage Canoes has the only commercial contract to take you there.

The Teifi gorge is one of the best examples of tidal gorge in the whole country and offers a safe and awe inspiring location for your whole family to try a fun new sport.

Canoeing in the gorge is a stunning adventure in the silent and untouched Teifi gorge. The river is very slow, flat water for most of the journey and there are a set of gentle rapids which you can run at the end of the trip. Expect to see native wildlife including kingfishers, rare dragonflies and if you’re really lucky an otter!

After a short walk along the river we arrive at the launch point,from there we set off up river to start exploring the Gorge which is unnavigable by power craft, making it an un-spoilt and idyllic location for spotting a variety of wildlife which includes Kingfishers, Otters, Heron's, Cormorants, Dragonflies, Salmon and Sewin to name but a few.

Our Open Canoe trips are fully guided journeys, using canoes which seat 2 or 3 people. Trips last around 2 1/2 hours and include all equipment and instruction.

During your voyage our guides will tell you the story of the Gorge. They will also help you on your search to identify fresh Otter tracks and the different species of wildlife all around.

At the end of your voyage we will finish off with a run down the gentle rapids, this is a fun, bumpy part just before you get out of the canoes and take a short walk back to the start point.

The Open Canoe Trips have something to offer everyone, young and old. We can accommodate anyone from the ages of 3 upwards. So far, our oldest customer is 93!

Trip Duration: 2 hours. Please arrive 30 minutes prior to departure for kitting out and briefing.

Suitable for all ages - no experience is necessary and you can even bring a well behaved dog!

Heritage Canoes is provided by Adventure Beyond Ltd on behalf of Fforest.
