Two-hour Parys Scenic Paddle

Take the opportunity to relish the tranquility of easy paddling on flatwater. On this two-hour scenic paddle, enjoy the peaceful riverine scenery, listen to the rhythmic sound of your paddle on the water, spot birds and feel stress dissolve with every stroke.

We paddle a wonderful length of flatwater dotted by islands with an abundance of birdlife. Darters, cormorants, ducks, kingfishers, egrets, herons (Goliath, grey) and fish eagles are common sightings. If you’re lucky, you may see a river otter or leguan (large monitor lizards). No matter what the season, the paddling here is scenic and peaceful.

Our Vagabond Mazowe kayaks are perfectly suited to this tour. They are stable, comfortable and easy-to-paddle kayaks. There is no risk that you will fall in. No experience is necessary.

This two-hour tour can easily be fitted into your day, leaving enough time to enjoy the town and surrounds.

This lovely paddle is ideal for friends, families, book club groups and all ages (yes, even your parents!).
