  • Description

    Starting at Tarbet we'll head south on Loch Lomond, before dropping down the River Leven onto the Clyde.

    From there we'll head out into the firth before heading up Loch Long to Arrochar before completing our trip with an optional portage back to Tarbet.

    Trip planning made easy!

    We know that when you're on a trip you don't want to worry about logistics, so we've taken care of everything! 

    Where there's a shuttle needed we'll take care of it, and when it comes to food we've a mouth watering menu put together, so all you have to worry about is enjoying it. 

    Our fleet of Hōu Canoes are available for you to use either paddling solo or with another member of the team, if you have your own boat feel free to bring it along and we'll discount your trip appropriately.

    During most of our trips, there are opportunities to gain your British Canoeing Multi Day Touring, Open Water Touring or Canoe Progressive award, (for a small additional cost). 


    This is an intermediate trip as it involves a number of big days and large open water crossings. If you're not sure if this is the trip for you get in touch and we can discuss it
