You will discover wonder
Nothing compares with the delight in canoeing a new river. Every bend a new vista and a watery tableau that opens up before you. You may have an inkling of what to expect but all the same a combination of light and reflection will invariably take your breath away.
The river really can bring wonder back into your life. If you’ve been feeling jaded then the newness and freshness of seeing the world at the slow pace, and reflective space that the river provides will rejuvenate you and replenish your soul.
It could be the wonder of the natural world that stuns you as you glide past the nonchalant birds and the fluttering damselflies or perhaps the tall glistening cliffs or the secretive quiet woods. Perhaps instead it’s the wonders of geology and geomorphology that reveal the massive grandeur of a landscape hitherto unknown to you.
But whether it’s a quiet country stream or a gigantic gorge the wonder can be just as profound.
