As described by the host of The Joy of SUP Podcast Jo Moseley, this is a trip of wonder. We launch from the historic market town of Bridgnorth travelling through the beautiful Shropshire countryside as we follow the famous Severn Valley Railway. Paddle in wonder as the steam trains chug by as we follow the flow of the beautiful river Severn. This trip will be for the best part of the day. We will spend approximately 5-6 hours on the river. Along the route we will stop for lunch at Otter island where you will be treated to a hot chocolate and flap jack from our Kelly Kettle. Our lunch spot is a location where the trains pass close by and on a good day we should spot an Otter or two. During the adventure we will give you an introduction into planning a river trip, how to read the water and paddle techniques to assist your journey. We will also cover the important kit to carry and wear for such a journey. Throughout the paddle you will be guided and coached to improve your ability on moving water. We will finish the journey in the little village of Arley where we will deflate our boards and jump on one of the famous steam trains for a magical journey back into Bridgnorth. This trip is designed for competent paddleboarders 18+.and must have their own equipment. You will need the below equipment, Paddleboard River Fin (advised) Paddle Quick release belt Suitable clothing for the weather Suitable footwear (old pair of trainers or wetsuit boots) Sun Cream Lunch and Drink
