About Canoe2
Based at the new leisure & retail destination, Rushden Lakes, we offer Canoe Hire, Comfy Camping, and Short Breaks on the River Nene in rural Northamptonshire. Centrally located between London & Birmingham, you can hire canoes and paddle down river for half a day to five days, toward Peterborough and into Cambridgeshire. We include a pick-up service at the end of many trips so you can choose to paddle only downstream. To complete your canoeing adventure, why not consider a Canoe2 Short Break canoeing holiday. These breaks are packaged up to include Comfy Camping, in bell tents, a yurt, or a tipi, or you could choose from our selection of excellent country hotels and B&Bs. Canoe2 Gift Experience Vouchers are also available. What could be better than presenting your loved one, friend, or work colleagues with an experience they'll remember and cherish for years to come? Or simply enjoy 30 or 60 minutes on our lovely lake, in your choice of canoes, kayaks, katakanus or swan pedalos.

The actual bat rides are very good, the staff are quite unfriendly and, don’t expect to have an easy ride when you want to take out a boat. They have the most ridiculous booking system if you are actually on site, having to look for their website, fill in all your details and then having problems with it not working correctly. The secondary option is to phone a number, a rather surly member of staff then answers from inside the building you are stood outside of, asks you to shout your bank details down the phone, in front of other, struggling clients, then tells you to go through the next process. All in, a nice experience turned sour due to inflexible systems.

Such a great day out. You see things from different perspective and I will be booking another trip for next year. We did Thrapston to oundle and it rained for first hour or so but it didn’t matter it was just a lovely calm way to see the country and we saw 3 kingfishers.
