We have paddled many rivers, both close to home and as far away as South Africa, Mongolia and North America. Here is a selection where I have written a blog of some sort.
We spent 10 days making a "figure of 8" circular trip around the lakes of Dalsland. The scenery is great. Normally this is an area of gentle paddling with little wind. We had however two really windy days and some torrential rain!
Our trip through the Netherlands from the Sint-Pietersberg in the south to Pieterburen in the north.
We made our own route through Ireland from North to South. I wrote a long blog on Song of the Paddle forum.
We fell in love with Mongolia in 2016 and returned this year to paddle the Orkhon river, in a different region to the previous trip. (No blog or link)
We revisited the Loire, which we had previously paddled in 2010 and enjoyed French culture and wine. (No blog or link)
With 4 German and Swiss friends, we spent 22 days on the Snake and Peel rivers in the Northern Yukon
Having just retired, we spent 7 weeks in Canada and paddled this trip in Manitoba end to end with the Snake and Peel trip.
In former East Germany, a bed and breakfast trip down the Werra. We paddled before easter. Campings only open after easter.
There is continuous white water for much of its journey from the mountains to the confluence with the MacKenzie and the mountain scenery is really fantastic. We planned to paddle it again in 2020 but Corona put paid to that.
We paddled the South Macmillan river in the Yukon Province of Canada in the summer of 2004. We started at the "VW put in " and paddled via the Pelly river and Yukon as far as Dawson. The trip is nearly 850 km long.
The Nahanni is one of our favourite rivers. We paddled it commercially with Nahanni River Adventures in 1994. We returned in 2002 and paddled the river with some friends Harry and
