Enjoy a gentle introduction and guided tour of the stunning Beaulieu River Nature Reserve during a Family Canoeing session with our friends at New Forest Activities. 

This 90 minute, family-friendly activity is great for all aged 18+ months and with your expert guide you’ll soon get to grips with the art of canoeing. All children must be accompanied by an adult. 

Spend time exploring the hidden creeks and waterways of the stunning Beaulieu River whilst trying to spot the varied wildlife along the way.

Buoyancy aids size down for the little ones so this really is the perfect family activity.
