1 Day Hire Kids Expedition - Sonning - Henley
Approx. 6 miles
£65 per canoe for the day.
This is especially suitable for families with children and light paddlers who are looking for a relaxed adventure. Make a few stops on the way and take in the rural scenery and explore the islands on the Sonning to Shiplake stretch.
There are great places to picnic and paddle, or book for lunch at the St George and Dragon in Wargrave.
The Hennerton Backwater is a must for a feeling of true wilderness and adventure. The slow running paradise backwater is a haven for wildlife including kingfishers and herons and will bring you out a short stretch above your final lock at Henley. If you arrive early in Henley you can carry on under the bridge and take a look at the Regatta Course before returning upstream to the meeting point.
For the more adventurous, make an extended detour round St Patrick's Stream.
Children up to the age of 10 must be accompanied by 2 adults in a canoe!
