Rivers Severn & Wye


We love creating inspirational and exciting DofE canoe expeditions for our customers and their students.

Canoeing is a great way for those who are not able to walk with a full pack in hilly or mountainous terrain or perhaps they just don't want to. That said, doing your gold award expedition by canoe it is also an amazing way to see and access some pretty special places and to see them from a very different perspective.

On this Atlas DofE  canoe expedition, your students can explore the wonderful waterways of the River Severn and Wye in a fully managed, well thought out and inspirational manner all whilst having the ownership of planning and participating in their expedition. Here at Atlas we take our responsibilities very seriously and we only use qualified and experienced staff to train and supervise our expedition teams. All of our leaders have vast experience of canoe expeditions and are on hand to ensure that students as prepared as they could be for their challenge. 

If you are looking to offer a Gold DofE expedition to your students then you can rest assured that you are in safe hands. Our managed programmes take place throughout the expedition season and we can make the delivery of it fit with your school programme.
