Not booked yet and seeking reassurance? Then you’re in the right place!

Here at Canoe2 we’ve been following government guidance throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. This has led to the temporary closure of our Canoe Shop at Rushden Lakes, which will re-open April 2021.

Our Canoe Hire, Short Breaks, and Pedalo Hire re-opened for a very successful second half of our 2020 season, until the end of September, and will re-open again in April for the 2021 season. TO BOOK, CLICK HERE

COVID-19 SECURE PROCEDURES. Safer: for you, for us, for everybody

We continue to work hard, ensuring that a wide range of trips remain available next year, within a COVID-19 Secure environment as per government guidelines, and without compromising our pre-existing safety procedures, briefings and equipment in any way.

We will continue to follow all guidelines to, as always, ensure the safest possible experience for you, as well as keeping all Canoe2 staff & partner organisations safe, still maintaining our professional & relaxed environment.

These times have been, and continue to be challenging to all, and we look forward to seeing you soon and to help you get away from it all.

Find an outline of our COVID-19 secure procedures HERE. Safer: for you, for us, for everybody.


Of course, we want to give you confidence when booking. So, if COVID-19 government restrictions & advice dictate that your trip is not possible on your selected date, we’re offering great flexibility under these unusual circumstances, and the following range of options:

- If postponement is necessary, right up to the last minute, we’ll work with you to find an alternative date that works.

- Or, choose to cancel, and we’ll send you Canoe2 Gift Vouchers to the value of your booking. These will be valid to the end of the 2022 season and can be used by yourself, or anybody you choose to give them to.

- If you don’t think you’ll get together as a group again for your trip, just let us know and we’ll send separate gift vouchers to members of your group to make their own plans

Please take care during these testing times and stay safe. Click Through Here to view the current government guidance on social distancing.

More than ever, we can’t wait to see you on the river!
