Wild paddles with Canoe2

Our collaboration with Northamptonshire company Canoe2 is a unique way to experience and appreciate nature - spot wildlife while gliding the River Nene.

Trips start from Rushden Lakes and include a relaxing self-guided paddle as well as a guided walk around Ditchford Lakes and Meadows  (part of Nene Wetlandswith a Wildlife Trust expert.

Canoe2 will donate 50% of ticket sales from these events to the Wildlife Trust BCN, so every trip helps wildlife!

“There can be no better way to enjoy and appreciate the rich and diverse habitat than gently paddling down the River Nene in an open Canadian canoe.”
