Go With The Flow River Adventures

Go With the Flow River Adventures is all about fun and discovery on the River Barrow with a range of options available – wet and wild white-water adventures, family trips that inform, educate and open the mind and lazy days where canoeists can float slowly along – bring a picnic and relax. The river landscape is dotted with old mills and store houses, castles and period mansions, old canals once used by the Guinness barges and lock chambers and lock houses that kept this old waterway alive and busy. Wildlife abounds – grey herons stand to attention and guard every weir. Cormorants dive underwater for their meals. Ducks, swans, egrets and frighteningly fast, electric blue kingfishers are all to be seen. Otters occasionally pop their heads up and salmon can often be seen jumping the weirs. Thrills abound if that is what you want. Some stretches have excellent white-water rapids which are nonetheless very safe. Half-day and full day river safaris are available in the company of qualified guides along any stretch of the river. Visitors can camp, B&B or hotel en route. Tents are also available for hire. All safety gear and equipment supplied. Advance booking essential. While Go-With-The-Flow River Adventures are very happy to suggest tour itineraries and routes, visitors are also welcome to indicate their preferred departure point along the river.
