Canoe & kayak team-building events


Hire kayaks or canoes for a morning or full day with collection and delivery included to suit your chosen route. We can work with local pubs, cafes, and restaurants to help you create a truly memorable event!

They were elite Sales Executives, lean, fit and hungry to hit their monthly sales targets… but NOTHING in their training had prepared them for… THRUPP!

These executives were good. They were VERY good. But Thrupp Kayak and Canoe Hire made them into a TEAM. They drove to a secret location on the Oxford Canal. They were given hot breakfast, a kayak and a paddle. They were made to relay race, build rafts and solve problems.

They were pushed right to the limit, discovered hidden reserves of strength and courage and, as a reward, had tea at Annie’s Tea Room.

Come and join in the fun!

Give your staff a well-deserved break from the office and enjoy a team-building day on the Oxford Canal. We can create a bespoke package to suit your requirements.
