Rowing The World

Inspiring Travel for Rowers

About Rowing The World

We connect rowers who love to travel. Rowers are passionate about their sport – we are rowers who are also passionate about travel. Rowing is a sport that is about place – where you row and the experience of rowing matters. Travel is about place and experiences. Rowing and travel make a natural pair, a good double. Rowing The World means inspiring travel for rowers.

Whether you are a recreational sculler or a competitive “rowing for life” athlete, whether you live in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand or anywhere else in the world, Rowing The World™ can offer you suitable and delightful rowing travel experiences, in your own country or continent or across the globe. Rowing travel is the chance to enjoy our favourite sport in another part of the world.

Each destination is unique, but all of our trips that we run have a similar high standard of quality. Most importantly, the rowing experiences are varied and exceptional. Some trips involve point-to-point rowing down a river or around a lake, changing accommodation as we go. In other trips we base ourselves in several beautiful places and enjoy rows out of different clubs. There is lots of choice in accommodation and there will be time for walks, bicycle rides, museum and other visits, and cultural experiences such as traditional music in a pub, a cooking class or wine tasting. We enjoy some of these activities with local rowers – more than one glass has been raised in rowing fellowship.

Typically, our trips are two to 10 days, with five to 15 rowers – small groups. Rowing The World partners with local clubs for the use of the rowing shells and safety boats, bringing needed revenue into rowing clubs. We frequently row recreational or coastal coxed quads and doubles. The types of boats we row and when and where we row is determined in collaboration with our partner rowing clubs. Our local guides are also drawn from these clubs, and they are talented, energetic, strong, knowledgeable, and most importantly, very welcoming.

We love our home waters. But there is a whole world of rowing to explore. Leave your familiar waters, launch from a new dock, experience a different boat and meet other rowers. One of the best ways to understand other countries and cultures is to spend time with local people who share your same passion. Perhaps you will get inspiration about new equipment for your club or insights on different techniques.  Join us to travel to row now!
