Kayaking & Raft Building

Raft Building


A weekend of fast action and adventure in the beautiful Dartmoor National Park, with activities that are both exhilarating, challenging and most of all fun! Specifically designed for people with little or no previous experience and who may not feel very fit, however are willing to 'have a go'.Great idea for a Stag, Hen  or an anniversary group looking for something to remember.

This fast moving weekend takes you;


Kayaking on Dartmoor, learn some basic skills, take part in some fun and action packed games! All this on safe water under qualified and experienced instruction. You will be amazed at your own skill level!


Dartmoor has a wide range of venues for rock climbing. Have a go on easy rock, if it feels good then try something harder. A climb for everyone is on offer, a great way to boost your own confidence. Learn to belay and become part of the team. Enthusiastic, qualified and experienced instructors will make sure you have a quality time.


This personal challenge is so much easier when friends and team mates give positive encouragement. A friendly and confident instructor completes the picture to make this an exciting challenge that is super safe.

Improvised raft building

Two teams, two lots of ideas, two frantically paddling raft teams and loads of wet fun as you race across the lake. A great way to finish off the kayak day!!

Optional 3rd Day

Stay for an extra day and explore by kayak or canoe one of Devon's fantastic river estuaries, put your new found skills to the test. These days are always fun and such a great way, not only to see the beauty of Devon but provide a grand finale to a fast action paced adventure to make a memorable weekend!!
