Canoe Hire on the River Nene in Northamptonshire

This beautiful stretch of river in rural Northamptonshire benefits from a wonderfully central location midway between London and Birmingham, within 25 minutes of both the M1 and A1.

The River Nene is one of Northamptonshire’s finest assets and it has a wealth of natural and historic beauty for you to enjoy in your Canoe.

With a choice of ½ day to 5 days canoe hire, there is something for everyone and if you have never been canoeing before, then canoeing with us could not be made easier.

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.  Your canoe hire package includes everything you need for your time on the river: canoes, paddles, buoyancy aids, watertight barrels and canoe trolleys. Happily, to ensure that you can make the most of your time canoeing the river, Canoe2 can provide transport so you only need to paddle one way - Downstream! We can also assist you with camping facilities or overnight accommodation arrangements.

Why not try a Short Break Canoe Holidays. Packaged up a comprehensive range of options, from one to five days. You can choose from our range of packaged breaks, offering overnight accommodation in bell tents, a yurt, or our selected independent country hotels and B&B's.
