TOUR the ultimate active adventure holiday. Let someone else do the hard work, selecting the best locations. I have rowed all around the world and have always had a fantastic time and met wonderful people. Competent rowing skills and a spirit of adventure are all that's required.  


Tour rowing is the fun part without much pain. This year many Australian rowers have enjoyed rowing tours in Australia and throughout the world in countries such as Ireland, Germany, Italy, Austria, Canada, France, Sydney Harbour and many other wonderful locations.  

Tours are popular as they incorporate athletic endeavour with travel, cultural and socializing with rowers who share similar interests. Tour rowers have an international perspective. Tours are a marvelous way to network with rowers throughout the world and within your country. Often rowers will seek out each other to go on tour each year!   

Tours range from privately run intimate tours to club and larger formal events sponsored by World Rowing (FISA) and many other national and club rowing events. Tours last for up to a week covering approximately 200km to one day events of approximately 25-30km. A variety of boats are used including coastal, river and traditional rowing boats.
