In such circumstances We will not be liable for reimbursing the cost of Your Booked Canoe Tour (in whole or part) or contributing to any expenses You may incur in making alternative arrangements. 

Extra Information

Please note: Sometimes Tours do not allow participants to run weirs if we do not have the appropriate qualified Instructor running them or the river conditions make it unsafe. Please enquire if this is important.

Canoes, paddles, buoyancy aids and waterproofs are available without cost if required. You are more than welcome to use any of your own kit as you wish if the Tour Leader deems it suitable and safe to do so.

Free car parking is available on site and is without height restriction

Changing, shower and toilet facilities are available on site.

Full payment is required at the time of booking. Bookings are non-refundable and are transferable only at the discretion of LOPC management, with at least 48 hours’ notice. All participants must fill in a consent form, for children this must be signed by their legal parent or guardian.

If rain levels have caused the River Soar to be unsafe to paddle we will endeavour to give you as much notice as possible and will either rearrange your booking on to another Tour or issue a refund in full.
