The Dart is a great trip for those who have a bit of whitewater experience. The Dart Loop section is 5km of classic grade 2/3 river starting at Newbridge and finishing at Dart Country Park. For those with good White Water Award / 3 star skills and dependent on water levels and coaching staff available, we may also paddle the Upper Dart, a grade 3(4) section of river with plenty of exciting features along the way. We will be staying in a static caravan near Dartmoor. The cost includes catering from Saturday am to Sunday lunch, accommodation, transport, equipment etc.
We normally stop at the Dart Country Park for their fantastic carvery (not included in cost) before the long trek home. Some spending money is advised to get something to eat on the journey. With features on the Loop section such as Lovers Leap, Washing Machine, Spin Dryer, Triple Falls; and Pandora’s Box & Euthanasia on the Upper Dart, you know you are in for a treat on this well paddled river. Other rivers on Dartmoor may be used to suit abilities and water level and weather conditions.
