We offer two ways to open canoe. You can go for the calm, relaxing lake discovery method or the whitewater adventure through rapids and waves. We even do expeditions of connecting Lochs in Scotland.




Canoeing in North Wales is one of the best ways to travel and explore this beautiful countryside. We will guide you along the canals over the famous Pontycysyllt aqueduct. We can take you on an adventure to one of North Wales local lakes. Or if you are looking for something more exciting book onto one of our river trips.

This is a fun-filled activity perfect for a stag or hen weekend, a great day out with you and your friends or a unique family day out. You can book online with lots of dates available. Alternatively, if you any questions send us a message and we will be sure to answer quickly.  We look forward to meeting you, on your next adventure with the bearded men adventures.

What to expect from Canoeing in North Wales, Llangollen.

We start at the south end of the aqueduct and soon enough you are paddling across this famous feat of engineering which stands at an impressive 126ft above the Dee River. Although this style of canoeing is deemed a calm and peaceful session the look over the edge is a gasping breathe ordeal but with our staff on hand, there is nothing to worry about, especially with a safe footpath on the opposing side. After this it is then a breeze down the canal, learning and developing skills across the way with some games and challenges thrown in. Our endpoint is the Sun Trevor pub which is a great location for some good quality grub and a cold drink.

At the other end of our canoe portfolio is our river trip down the River Dee which starts at Glyndyfrdwy rail station and then coincidentally brings us under the Ponty Aqueduct. With rapids and waves to conquer on the way down, it makes for an adrenaline view of the river that you may have never seen before. We start with basic skills session at the beginning on a flatter part of the river, then we progress onto moving water skills so that you are in control the entire way down. This can be a full river trip all the way down to a small town called Chirk or we can pop In the canal and go into Llangollen for a spot of lunch. All of these like our other products are customisable and we try to accommodate any requests we can.
