We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.

Canoeing and kayaking

Exploring our canals and rivers by canoe can help you get fit, closer to nature and allows you to experience our waterways from a totally new angle.

Our ongoing work to care for canals and rivers means that many people have the perfect canoeing spot virtually on their doorstep. Nearly two million people already go canoeing in Britain and with more people trying it every day, isn’t it time you gave it a go too?

Canals are great for beginners and experts alike and you’ll find plenty of canoe clubs on our network, who can get you started or build on your existing skills.
