Are there rules about drinking in the canoes?

Yes. Soft drinks are not a problem of course but drinking alcohol in the canoes is strictly not allowed.

Please note we are not a ‘booze cruise’!

Canoeing is supposed to be a fun and relaxing activity. As well as being unsafe, there are laws about being under the influence of alcohol while in a boat (just as there are for driving).

If you’d like to enjoy an alcoholic drinkĀ during your stop in Thorpe, we advice all participants to not drink any more alcohol than you would if you were to take part in traffic. In addition to the laws as mentioned above, you will also lose your sense of balance very quickly and this is rather important to keep in mindĀ if you want to avoid tipping over and getting wet!

We remind groups that you will not be allowed to begin your trip if you appear to be under the influence of drink or drugs.
