​Canoe2 have linked up with The Wildlife Trust for Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire & Northamptonshire in an exciting partnership giving you the chance to experience nature on the River Nene in a very different way.

The partnership provides two unique opportunities to combine a relaxing paddle along the river with unique insights into the local nature from Wildlife Trust experts:

​Dawn Chorus Early Morning River Paddle - Saturdays 22nd and 29th April, starting at 6.15am

Before you leave for your canoe trip you will be taken on a Dawn Chorus walk around the Wildlife Trust’s idyllic waterside nature reserve at Ditchford Lakes & Meadows with wildlife experts helping you identify birds along the way through their early morning calls. Then, just around the corner at Ditchford Lock, you will go for your magical early morning paddle on the river, ending back at Ditchford around 10.00am

​2-Person Canoe = £50

3-Person Canoe = £65

4-Person Canoe = £70 (suitable for 2 adults with 2 children aged 5 to 10 yrs)

​Evening Paddle and Bat Spotting Walk - Takes place in August/September. Dates for 2017 yet to be confirmed.

​Canoes will depart from Ditchford Lock. After a peaceful early evening paddle on the River Nene you will be met back at Ditchford by your Wildlife Trust experts just as the bats are starting to come out. You’ll then be taken on a guided walk of Ditchford Nature Reserve as dusk settles. Everyone will have the opportunity to use a bat detector which picks up the ultrasonic frequencies used by bats as they hunt. The event will finish by 9.45pm

Please note that, as per all Canoe2 canoe hire trips, you will receive a full Safety Briefing and Paddle Demonstration before setting off in your canoe, so you will be well prepared. Canoe Trips are not escorted on the river.

Canoe2 will be donating 50% of ticket sales from these events to The Wildlife Trust

​Availability is very limited, so please do be sure to book soon for 2017.

​To book, or order your Gift Vouchers, please contact Canoe2 on 01604 832115 or email info@canoe2.co.uk

We are incredibly pleased and excited to be partnering with The Wildlife Trust again in 2017. As a corporate member of the trust we look forward to further supporting their valuable work caring for some of our customers’ best loved stretches of river
