From our base in Trim, Boyne Valley Activities have a fantastic River Trail option. With 35 kilometers of Waterways to explore, this is a super stretch of water to navigate.

It is all Grade 2 water which is a gentle flow most of the way down with  some small rapids to test your skills  as you pass through them. Being in the heart of the Boyne Valley, you will pass some amazing  Abbeys and Castles along the route and the scenery is second to none.

The beauty of this Trail is that Boyne Valley Activities can tailor it to suit your needs. Whether it’s Self Catering Accommodation  or Camping overnight along the banks of the Boyne or it’s a 6km trip or 35km trip is entirely up to you!

No experience is necessary for this trip as we will rent you kayaks or canoes and will run through the basics before you take to the water, they are very easy to paddle and you will have a map of the area and we will keep contact with you by text every morning to see how you are doing (and to make sure you have made it past the pubs!).

So if you’re a group of friends, a family or you just feel like getting away from it all, kick  back and chill out  for a few days, then this is the trail for you!
