Beaulieu River Tours

Our Beaulieu River Tours are perfect for those looking to get out on the water whilst avoiding the weekend crowds. Running midweek, outside of the school holidays, you can choose from either our stable ‘Canadian style’ canoes or our single touring kayaks for your session. You can let us know beforehand which type of boat you’d like. Kayaks suitable for 12+ years only.

Sessions will run for 2 hours, where you’ll embark on a gentle river tour of the bustling Beaulieu River Nature Reserve learning about the river’s rich history, beauty and wildlife. Plus, our instructors will be on hand to help from start to finish. Meet like-minded people, enjoy gentle exercise and tick another one off the bucket list! All children must be accompanied by an adult.

What's Included?

  • Introductions to the equipment and initial kitting up
  • Two hours of learning skills and exploring the area
  • Use of easy to paddle 2 and 3 seater canoes or single touring kayaks, with safe modern equipment
  • Paddle tops and waterproofs as required
  • Instruction from a qualified coach to help with your progress
  • A guided New Forest canoeing and kayaking tour and a journey up or down river depending on tides and weather
  • Toilets and changing facilities available on-site

We can run extra sessions at a time to suit you. If you can’t easily find the date you’re after please contact us and we will be happy to help.
