Description of Full Day Canoe Hire ChesterHead out for a scenic and relaxing paddle on the River Dee in an Old Town Canadian Canoe.
Farndon to Chester - 12 miles - Full Day (4 to 6 hours) with Chester Kayak Hire.
Our canadian canoes can take a maximum of 2 Adults and 1 Child (under 14).
The trip starts at the historic Farndon to Holt bridge right on the England / Wales border. You'll paddle through the tranquility of serene pastures, miles from civilization. Maybe stop off for lunch at one of the sandy beaches on the river bank. You'll pass through a brief section of small easy rapids that'll spice things up a bit before continuing your journey along the tree lined river, through peaceful meadows. It's not unusual to be the only ones on this section of water - it's like having miles of countryside all to yourself.
Wildlife is in abundance so make sure you pack your camera! You'll pass right through the heart of the Duke of Westminsters' estate and under the famous blue ironbridge designed by Thomas Telford and built in 1824.
After 8 miles you'll reach the village of Ecclestone
Paddle on towards to Chester and you'll reach the swanky Red House public house which has it's own jetty. The trip ends about a mile from the city centre at Sandy Lane jetty next to the sailing club, however if time (and your energy) permits you can paddle into the city, past the band stand as far as the Weir. You'll need to return upstream to the jetty and car park at Sandy Lane, Chester
