There are so many special places to go canoeing in the UK. We aim to help provide the inspiration and the knowledge to help you get out there and go paddling!
In this area you will find information on British Canoeing Canoe Trails; our mini guides to waterways, providing all the information you need to get you on an adventure! We are continually adding new trails each month, so keep your eyes peeled for new routes.
You will also find info on British Canoeing’s own special Places to Paddle portfolio as well as canoe hire and camping.
