Wet Walk Avon Valley 20th July 9am
20th July 2021 | 9:00 am - 11:00 am£35.00
Walk, wade and splash your way down the river Avon in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Leaving Aveton Gifford at low tide, you’ll follow your guide down the meandering river Avon to Bigbury Bay. On the way, you’ll stop to admire the fields of wild samphire, swim in natural pools, walk across sandy islands and explore the many salt-marshes, creeks and inlets on this beautiful river. We also guarantee you’ll get wet and covered in sand!
Wet walking is one of the best ways to appreciate the rich biodiversity of this marine conservation zone and we always take care to respect the wide range of fauna and wildlife that live in this fragile environment. If you’re lucky, you’ll spot birds such as swans, herons, kingfishers, sandpipers, oyster catchers and curlews.
On the way down you’ll stop at a secluded inlet and enjoy complimentary refreshments and a snack. Once you reach Bigbury Bay, we’ll arrange for your transport back to Aveton Gifford.
Meet at Timber Car Park at Aveton Gifford. It’s the car park at the top of the tidal road just off the Aveton Gifford roundabout.
Price includes guide, refreshments and lift back to start. Please turn up in trainers or wet suit boots and clothes you don’t mind getting wet. We have a dry bag if you would like to carry a spare set of dry clothes.
Please arrive 15 minutes early so we can get you kitted up.
