Explore the stunning Beaulieu River by Canoe

Canoeing in The New Forest

Located on the banks of the tidal and privately owned Beaulieu River, our canoeing base offers a wonderful location to explore. Take the River up or down stream, drift on tidal currents or explore hidden creeks. Whether it’s your first time in a canoe or you’ve been before, our expert guides will tailor your experience perfectly.

Exploring since 2003, you’ll benefit from our many years of guiding people on the Beaulieu waters. There’s a range of canoeing sessions to choose from, all possible through our exclusive license to canoe on this stunning Nature Reserve. You’ll be in Open ‘Canadian Style’ Canoes, so you will feel stable and safe, as you learn and explore.

We welcome dogs on all of our canoeing sessions. Just bring along a blanket or towel for them to perch on on the boat!
