Llandrinio to Shrewsbury
25.5 miles - 2 days
Setting out from the 18th century Llandrinio bridge which is surrounded by WW2 history you will encounter a small but enjoyable rapid which gives you a taste of what is to come in the first few miles. The river is narrow and meandery for the first section where you will have numerous trees to avoid and little rapids to navigate until the confluence of the River Vrnwy meets the Severn just before Crew Green bridge which is a converted WW2 railway bridge. You have the option of stopping by the Royal Hill pub for lunch before setting off again towards Montford Bridge where you will be camping for the night which is convienently placed next to the Wingfield Arms pub.
Day 2 is a little shorter which provides a slightly easier day for your crew, setting off from camp you head downstream past the confluence of the Perry and into Shrewsbury, its best to pack a picnic for lunch for this day as there are no pubs en route so we have placed a picnic site roughly half way along.
You meet us at Montford Bridge for this trip meaning you can leave all of your camping equipment here and that you only have to carry the bare minimum with you in the canoes.
Camping costs £8 per person and has good showers available on site!
Ideal for couples, families and groups .
£60 per adult

On the day we will meet you at 9am to start your adventure. Upon arrival we have a small amount of paperwork for you to fill in, then we give you all of the required equipment to ensure your trip is comfortable and safe.
We transport you to the launch point, we then show you how to use your canoe and talk about the route. Once you arrive in Shrewsbury on your second day we normally advise you land at the tea room and give us a call and we will collect you in the minibus and return you to our centre.
