GUIDE LED RIVER TRAIL

 

PADDLE WITH A GUIDE BESIDE YOU

 

The best days on the Boyne are when you go downstream with a local paddler. They know the easy routes, the sudden drops and the longer trails that take you deep into rarely seen Boyne countryside. All you’ll have to do is soak up the sights, enjoy the craic and forget about the 9 to 5. No matter what trail you take, your guides will get you back to base safely.

These Sit on Top Kayak trails are the perfect day out for pure beginners, families and wannabe explorers. Groups are put together according to whether you want leisurely drifts through nature or fun splashfests. Before you even set foot in water you’ll be taught the basics. Once on the Boyne, your guide will take you through your paces. This is the fun part. By the end of a guided trip, you’ll be paddling with confidence thanks to spending 2 hours with your group guide.
