Canoeing Cardigan Gorge, Nature reserve

Canoeing with CBA

Our adventure Canoe trip on the lower Teifi heads from Llechryd down the gorge on a peaceful section of river as far Cardigan passing the Teifi marshes. This trip takes between 4-5 hours.

This trip is a peaceful paddle looking at the surrounding natural environment, your Guide will talk to you about the history and wildlife in the gorge.

During the trip we ask that you bring a packed lunch, as we stop at a peaceful spot to soak in the environment, have a brew before continuing down river.

Winding towards the sea the deep, tidal Teifi Gorge is a unique environment where fresh and salt waters meet. Due to it’s wide array of species it forms one of the most varied aquatic landscapes in the country. The gorge itself was hewn through a slate hill by a glacier retreating to the Irish Sea at the end of the last ice age.

The gorge offers safe, gentle river paddling in open canoes for people of all ages and abilities. With the river flowing lazily past ancient woodland and wildlife habitats, a canoe trip should be high on your list of must-do’s on your holiday.

The Teifi Gorge is one of the best examples of tidal gorge in the whole country and offers a safe and awe inspiring location for your whole family to try a fun new sport. The steep, densely wooded banks form an important habitat to species of Otter, Red deer, Peregrine falcon, Kingfishers, Dragonflies, Salmon and Sewin (Sea trout). The gorge has been an important centre of coracle fishing and slate quarrying for hundreds of years but now the gorge forms part of the Teifi marshes nature reserve. Canoeing in the gorge is a stunning adventure in the silent and untouched Teifi Gorge. The river is very slow, flat water for most of the journey and there are a set of gentle rapids which you can run at the end of the trip. Expect to see native wildlife including Kingfishers, rare Dragonflies and if you’re really lucky an Otter!
