Source to Sea tours are NEW immersive journeys down some of England’s most iconic rivers, by whatever means possible – and they are downhill all the way – what could be better! This tour is for the adventurous, the inquisitive and those who want to see a journey to its natural end. We travel by foot (walking or running), by bike, by SUP, canoe, kayak and swim from the source of these beautiful rivers, to their mature state and finally to the sea via the estuaries.
From the River Dart in Devon, the Camel and Fowey in Cornwall and the Wye, on the England / Wales border, our rivers are the backdrop and routes for wonderful journeys.
It’s not a race and guests can do as much activity as they like per day. There are many opportunities to “cut the corner” and to travel by alternate means including steam train, boat, or via our support vehicles. It’s completely up to you.
Spend the evenings in the best pubs known to man, or around the fire pit, with home cooked food, a beer in hand – bliss. The tour is fuelled by good company, our wonderful and fully trained guides, and is a magical six day journey that you’ll remember for a lifetime.
“At your own pace” is our motto. You can choose can choose to push yourself on a daily basis with plenty of different options available, including early morning swims or longer bike rides, or travel at a more leisurely pace, drinking in the wonderful views and immersing yourself in the rivers as they meander their way to the sea.
Each day there is a programme of activity which is completely flexible. Don’t feel obliged to do all the activities and if you fancy an afternoon off to stroll along the beach or read your book in the sun – that’s no problem at all.
Evenings are relaxed – either in the local and atmospheric pubs, or around the firepit – and designed for you to completely unwind with like-minded people and good cheer all round!
A new adventure awaits – only an a couple of hours from London, Bristol, and the Midlands. We’ll start your holiday straight from the train station, or meet us at the start point by car and you can get going straight away!
Immerse yourself in our wonderful rivers, such an integral part of our countryside and whilst not completely undiscovered, charting the course of the rivers is an adventure that few have attempted.
So just bring yourself, some active wear and a sense of adventure and we’ll cover everything else.
Guided by our outstanding guides, and using all our equipment, we know every bend in the rivers and all access points, every pub, afternoon tea stop, local micro-brewery or gin distillery to suit all tastes along the route! And our support vehicle is always on hand if you want to change clothes or have a rest. You’ll not need to worry about any of your luggage transfers, bookings or equipment as it will all have been taken care of for you.
