Group in Canoes
Summary: This is an out-and-back route perfect for adults and fit families who want to enjoy paddling on a quiet meandering section of the river.
Highlight: Quiet route.
Timings: Choose between two afternoon start times. 12:00 or 14:00.
Location: Kempston Mill (launch point less than 5 min walk along the riverside path)

This is a lovely route that we are excited to re-launch for the 2021 season. This trip is timed to make the most of the afternoon sunshine and is set on a quiet part of the river. This is the perfect trip for those who have paddled our Bedford routes or those wishing to have a little paddle on this smaller section of the River Great Ouse.  This is an out and back route with this section of the river requiring a little bit of effort to get back to the start point so ideal for adults and fit families.
We provide a simple and easy-to-read map and a waterproof dry bag for your belongings. Highly popular among friends, couples, families, and groups.
