Frequently Asked Questions

We have taken people from the age of 8 to 80, our oldest client was 81. This is down to fitness, confidence and activity choice.

There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing!

Activities run rain or shine, wind or snow. We recommend dressing appropriately for each activity. Rain doesn’t stop activities.

For the Aqueduct Canoe Tour, high winds (anything from 40 mph gusts) would be a reason for us to cancel/reschedule. We will notify you if this is the case.

Any children under 8 years old will require 2 adults to accompany them in the canoe.

Your dog is more than welcome to join us on your journey during your Aqueduct Canoe Tour.  We often have dogs join us for the journey, and there is also a towpath along the whole journey if you need to walk at any point.  Your dog doesn’t require a lifejacket (though if you have one and wish to use it then we will leave this down to you).

Must read small print…The small print we are required to inform you of is that your dog is your responsibility for the duration of the journey, and we accept no responsibility for any harm or loss of life of your pooch.  (I know this comes across quite blunt, we just need to share this with you).
We do recommend that you use a lead on your dog whilst travelling across the aqueduct, though we also leave this as your decision as you know your dog better than we do.  There may be other dogs in other canoes during the journey, so please be aware of this added dynamic for your dog and the interaction.  If our Instructor feels that any dog is a threat to any customer or member of the public they have the right and responsibility to remove the dog and owner from the session, which will result in a forfeit of the session without a refund.

For our private sessions, we can accommodate from 11 to 30+ individuals. Just message the adventuro live chat to arrange, or click the button below the booking form to send a large booking request.

All abilities are welcome.

This is a guided tour session aimed as an introduction into canoeing, whilst being able to take in the views of the Dee Valley. Every session involves a 20-minute introduction and safety talk/demonstration.

Canoes are recommended for 2 people. You can paddle alone if you are proficient enough. If you’ve never canoed before, we do not recommend paddling alone.

Believe us, if you leave it to one person to pull their weight it may not be smooth sailing!

Unfortunately our canoes are not equipped for someone on crutches/mobility scooter/wheelchair. We do have other activities you can enjoy, please contact us to discuss.  

Llangollen has a range of fantastic hotel/BnBs in a variety of price ranges!

Some ideas: Llangollen Hostel, Wild Pheasant Hotel & Spa, Three Eagles, The Hand…

Again, Llangollen has a huge range of places to eat, all different cuisines and price ranges. 

Some of our recommendations would be: Three Eagles, The Corn Mill, Riverbanc, m’Eating Point…
