Kayak Hire in The New Forest
Looking for an unforgettable, self-guided kayaking experience?
With so much wildlife to see and hidden creeks to discover, there’s no better way to explore the Beaulieu River than by kayak.
Head out on single or double sit-on-top kayaks and explore the Beaulieu River’s wide-open waters. Bask in the sunshine, cause a splash, or spend an afternoon drifting on the river’s calm waters – it’s up to you!
These are self-guided sessions, so after a quick briefing on arrival, we’ll give you all the kit, a map of the river and then send you on your very own river adventure!
Please note, this activity is self-guided so you must be able to swim.
