Wild paddles with Canoe2

A group of people set off on canoes on the river Nene

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!

COVID-19 Update

In response to the pandemic we have sadly needed to cancel all of our events between March and July, as well as many we had planned for the rest of the year. We know how important nature is for everyone's health and wellbeing though, we have been working hard to adapt our popular engagement activities and are now able to offer a some small-group events at a few of our sites (pre-booking essential) as well as a growing list of on-line events.

How we are responding to COVID-19

“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.”
