New for 2021!

This is the perfect trip for those who really just want to be messing about on the river and shake off those winter blues. You can set a leisurely pace, as all you have to do is be back at the start point by your finish time, so you can paddle as much or as little as you like in the time given. With the flexibility that this trip brings, you can pull over almost anywhere along the riverbank for a picnic or even a swim to make the most of your day.

This river trip is a fantastic introduction to paddling, especially for those with younger children, allowing them to enjoy a more manageable river journey, at a leisurely pace. It starts in leafy Kempston, near the Mill before heading off to explore Bedfordshire’s rural countryside. The river banks are teeming with wildlife with birds of prey, herons, the occasional grass snake, and flitting electric blue kingfishers.

4 legged friends are always welcome - if you have a particularly large K9 friend, please give us a call and we can provide you with a wider boat to give you all the best chance of staying dry!
