We aim to keep our website as up-to-date as possible but due to the ongoing situation, it is still recommended to check the websites of individual venues before making any plans to attend. Many venues have reopened with new safety measures in place. Some venues are yet to reopen and some events may have been rescheduled or moved online.

Glow Tours with CBK Adventure Co

Glow Tours

Join CBK Adventure Co on a 2-hour guided Glow Tour along the River Tyne. This memorable illuminated kayak tour allows you to paddle beneath NewcastleGateshead's iconic bridges, taking unique pictures from the point of view of the river and enjoying the view of the sunset as you go. It truly is the perfect way to experience the beauty of the Tyne and the twin cities that sit upon her banks. Suitable for adults and accompanied children age 16+.

Dates available from 4 November 2020 - 5 March 2021. Guided tours last approx 2 hours and take place as the sunsets so will vary depending on the month you book.

After a briefing from your guides and a relaxed warm up, we’ll launch our kayaks from Newcastle City Marina, just beneath the Tyne Bridge. Tours always start with a quick kayak skills lesson on the water so you get a feel for the boat.

As this tour takes place after dark, your kayak is illuminated with LED lights. You’ll also have a small light on your helmet, as will the guides, so you can always see the other members of your group.

After the tour, enjoy a round of hot drinks (or stronger!) at Head of Steam Quayside and relax while you warm up. If restrictions on socialising indoors remain in place, CBK Adventure Co we will provide a pre-paid drinks voucher so you can visit in your individual household group, rather than as a large group all together.
