Description: Come and join us for a day at the river Barle! This is an ideal follow-on trip for paddlers having done a moving water taster or the Yat or anyone wanting to refresh skills. So come and enjoy a day on the river in fab scenery, the River Barle runs from northern Exmoor (Somerset) south to join the River Exe. It’s pretty and drains the opposite side of the hill from the much harder River Lyn. As always depending on water and weather conditions we may choose another river or postpone the trip at short notice.

Food: Please arrange your own food for the day and plenty of drinks, and ideally a sealed tub and dry bag to transport your lunches in.
