Enjoy a wonderful New Forest canoeing experience on the stunning Beaulieu River in safe and stable open Canadian canoes. This activity is perfect for older families, couples and groups and all participants must be 12+ years or over. All under 18's must be accompanied by an adult.

We cover quite a distance if the tides and conditions allow or we can work with you to develop your canoeing skills. If you want a shorter time afloat or more a relaxed pace, you should try one of our Family Canoeing sessions.

All sessions are guided by experienced and qualified coaches. Let us know if you need any advice on what’s the best canoeing option for you.

  • Introductions to the equipment and initial kitting up 
  • Two hours of learning skills and exploring the area
