The Annual Schuylkill River Sojourn will return in June. The 7-day, 112-mile guided paddle will begin on Saturday, June 1, 2019 from Schuylkill Haven and last until Friday, June 7, 2019 where it will end in Philadelphia. The event is organized annually by Schuylkill River Greenways. Participants can register for one day or the entire week.
About the Sojourn
The Schuylkill River Sojourn is an annual 112-mile guided canoe/kayak trip on the Schuylkill River that begins in rural Schuylkill Haven and ends seven days later in Philadelphia’s Boathouse Row. Participants paddle 14-18 miles per day and can register for the entire trip or as little as one day.
Sometimes it is wet and wild. At other times it is peaceful and inspiring. There are a few rapids, calm water, plenty of laughs, songs at the campsites, and celebrations in the river towns. There is a little bit of everything for paddlers throughout the week-long sojourn that begins the first weekend of June. And though the same route is paddled every year, a different river greets us every June.
