Ten of the best spots for waterborne thrills, as chosen by you
It has to be the River Taf! The sea trout fishing is some of the best in the country, as is the canoeing between Login and Whitland.
The River Welland flows through Stamford |Visit Britain
My local river. It’s perfect for a Sunday afternoon canoe, complete with a stop in beautiful Stamford for a cream tea!
One of the most tranquil, remote riverside bike rides I’ve done, it follows an old railway line along the river from Lincoln all the way to Boston some 30 miles later.
Whitewater rafting awaits| Visit Wales
The best whitewater spot in Wales. It’s riddled with bubbling, bouncy rapids before spilling out into Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake).
Anyone who loves whitewater kayaking has to head here, especially in spring when the snow has melted and river is devilishly good fun!
Bridge across the River Dart | Fotolia.com
Home to one of my favourite day walks, The Dart Valley Trail, which runs from Dittisham to Totnes. Head further upriver, to Staverton, for a wild swim in surprisingly warm waters.
The River Spey is my favourite, thanks to miles of canoe-able waters (and plenty of distilleries!).
Along this river is a secluded spot made for wild swimming. That’s all I’m going to say!
The Peak District’s finest|VisitBritain / Tony Pleavin
A hiking and fly fishing haven which twists its way through the wild Peak District.
Its rapids make it my go-to spot for kayaking. Anglers will love the trout fishing lower down the river as well.
