Winter Paddling

Available from November – March

During the Winter months we appreciate the thought of heading out onto the water might not appeal quite so much however, the Beaulieu River offers some of its more stunning views on a crisp Winter’s day.

Enjoy the fresh Winter breeze during a peaceful meander along the river’s calm waters. Discover seasonal bird species (and if you’re lucky Beaulieu’s resident seal!)

So wrap up warm and get out on the water this Winter. With our fantastic Winter Paddling price, you really have no excuse. Suitable for those aged 18+ months (kayaks only available to those aged 12+ years). All children must be accompanied by an adult.
