If you enjoy the peace and tranquillity of a quiet river then a touring trip with North Avon Canoe Club will help you develop a strong forward paddling technique to help you get the most from your paddling. These trips are suitable for open (Canadian) canoes and kayaks alike. You will encounter some moving water and most of the local rivers include weirs which can be exciting to shoot (we always inspect them carefully first!), or you can carry your boat round. River touring is a great way to see beautiful scenery and wildlife - we often see kingfishers and herons.
