In the Autumn and Winter, our programme is themed around the city at night, so join us for a first-look night time tour through Brum’s famous canals. Our Bustling Birmingham kayak tour, with a different kind of bustle!
Kayaking through Birmingham at night is a completely different experience to the daytime. Buildings illuminated by the sun are now transformed by streetlights and signs, and the canal takes on a very dark inky colour as the kayaks cut through in comparative quiet.
We’ll aim to spend approximately 90 minutes on the water, paddling through Oozells loop, past the Utilita Arena and along Brindleyplace; visiting Cambrian Wharf with views of the BT tower on the way. We’ll end at the Mailbox before making our way back to the Roundhouse.
No experience is necessary for our kayak tours; our experienced and knowledgeable guides will get you paddling and navigating your way around Birmingham’s darkness in a safe and enjoyable way.
We will be paddling approximately 3 miles in total.
We will provide every participant with a buoyancy aid, regardless of their swimming ability, so that should you fall in you’ll be safe. Tours are led by a professionally qualified British Canoeing Instructor who will give full tuition. Sit back, paddle and have fun!
Suitable For: 18 years+
Number of Steps? Not many steps but quite a few strokes, a basic level of fitness (walking up the stairs without being out of breath) will suffice. We’ll be paddling approximately 3 miles.
