Here's a look at what's in-store for your adventure:

Day 1:

Meet in the morning to drop off your bags (our driver will drop off and meet you at the campsite.) After going through the safety introductions, you’ll spend the day kayaking along the river, stopping off for well-deserved ice cold drinks at riverside pubs along the way, shooting down some thrilling weirs before arriving at our secret campsite in the woods for BBQ grub and great conversations around the campfire. Located in a beautiful spot along the River Soar, you’ll set up camp and get ready for relaxing! Light up the BBQ and prepare for an evening of delicious food, campfire catch ups and chilling out under stars.
