New For 2013 – Join New Forest Activities and hire a single seater kayak at Sopley Lake. The perfect activity if you’re looking for a great fun on the water. Great fun in the summer for all ages.
Our new site at Sopley Lake is a tranquil 4 acre lake with a big island in the middle in the West of the New Forest. It’s the perfect venue for kids and families or first timers to kayaking. Combine your kayaking adventure with the ‘Pick your Own’ farm you’ll find right next to the lake.
You’ll need clothes you don’t mind getting wet with a change for afterwards, good soled shoes for on the water and a sense of adventure. You’ll get your very own kayak with paddle and buoyancy aid. We will also make sure your happy with some basic techniques of paddling and rescue before you head out to enjoy splashing around. Sit on tops are easy to use and easy to climb back on if you fall or jump off into the water.
The cost of a kayak hire is £13 per person per hour at a set time of the day. A group of 6 or more can book on for any time, under 18’s have to be signed in by an adult and there are limited facilities at the lake.
