28 Reasons to go Canoeing: 7: Swimming

Canoeing in the Belgium Ardennes

Finding a tranquil spot to swim as the sun goes down


Wild-swimming has become all the rage of the past couple of years. For good reason. Because swimming in the wild is great and knocks a chlorine infested swimming-pool into a cocked-hat.

Canoeing down a river obviously presents plenty of opportunities for finding spots for swimming which are well away from places that have ordinary access. On a hot day nothing could be better than finding a secluded deep pool in the river, or a lonely, but beautiful beach on a lake, to take a swim.

You can even choose a place where the water is running fast. Keep you life-jacket on and shoot some rapids in the water or merely sit underneath a rock and get yourself a wonderful massage.
