But also, we hope, a chance to Relax, Recharge & Reconnect with your surroundings & with each other.
We started out in 2010.
For nine years, we’ve been offering canoe hire on The River Nene in rural East Northamptonshire, with great safety & paddle briefings and oodles of great advice from knowledgable staff, and all the equipment you’ll need, including paddles, buoyancy aids, watertight containers and portage trolleys. The River Nene is a lovely calm, gentle river, and is perfect for the novice paddler, and wherever required, we include pick-up or drop-off at the start or end of your trip, so you only paddle downstream.
But just a year into our adventure, customers were asking for more. So, we introduced what has since become perhaps the most loved Canoe2 offering, our enhanced multi-day “Bundles” that also include overnight accommodation.
Discovering the most beautiful, tranquil stretches of river over 2 or 3 days, you can enjoy overnight stays in carefully selected Bed & Breakfasts, Inns or Hotels, or choose our wonderful “Comfy Camping” options, staying in our Yurt, Tipi, Shepherd’s Hut or Bell Tents. And wherever you stay we include fabulous breakfasts, and our all-important baggage transfer, creating trips you just won’t want to end (honestly, just take a look at our Canoe2 TripAdvisor page )
With trips running downstream toward Peterborough, and into Cambridgeshire, this beautiful stretch of river benefits from a wonderfully central location midway between London and Birmingham, within 30 minutes of both the M1 and A1. Click here to book online
The River Nene is one of Northamptonshire & Cambridgeshire’s finest assets and has a wealth of natural and historic beauty for you to enjoy in your Canoe.
Over our ten years we’ve introduced many thousands of customers to the joys of paddling The River Nene, the majority being first time novice paddlers that always appreciate our quality, informative briefings & good advice before setting off on the water.
In total, we estimate that our paddlers have covered in excess of 100,000 miles on the beautiful river Nene, and that doesn’t even include the “weaving” effect we often see as everybody is, ummm…. “practising their steering”
And in that time paddlers that have chosen to take a multi-day adventure have enjoyed wonderful overnight stays, some in our carefully selected fabulous B&B’s, some bringing their own tent along for the ride, but the vast majority taking advantage of our lovely family friendly “Comfy Camping” that include everything you need to cook up a fabulous fry-up breakfast!
We particularly pride ourselves on the highest levels of customer service, from your first enquiry, through to the final splash of your paddle, and beyond. If you’d like to know what our customers think, please check out our Canoe2 TripAdvisor page
Canoeing the Nene is great fun for everyone and our canoe hire & camping is regularly enjoyed by couples, families and groups of friends, as well as corporate gatherings (for both team-building days & client events).
With river hire prices starting from £35 per 2-person-craft, you really can afford to Canoe2.
We even have a fabulous Meeting Room over-looking the lake, available for hire for corporate meetings, or private parties, and we particularly want to encourage community use, with lower pricing for use by local community organisations and charities.
