Heritage Canoes

About Heritage Canoes

The River Teifi has some of the most breath taking , otherwise unreachable stretches in Wales.  Heritage Canoes has the only commercial contract to take you there.
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.
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!
Our Open Canoe trips are fully guided journeys, using canoes which seat 2 or 3 people. Trips last around 2 1/2 hours and include all equipment and instruction.
Suitable for all ages – no experience is necessary and you can even bring a well behaved dog!
Heritage Canoes is provided by Adventure Beyond Ltd on behalf of Fforest.

Heritage Canoes is located in the Welsh Wildlife Reserve, Cilgerran (SA43 2TB).

Make your way to Cilgerran & follow the brown tourist signs for Welsh Wildlife Reserve – you will then see signs for Heritage Canoes.
We are in Slate Cottage, just past the Wildlife Centre & Cafe on the right hand side (opposite the children's play park)

There is a public bus service from Cardigan, Crymych & Narberth to Cilgerran (the 430 bus).  It won't take you all the way to the Wildlife Centre, so you'll need to walk from the main road for about 1.5 miles along the country lane to Slate Cottage.
