Have Frightful Fun On Our New Spooky Paddling Trails!

As the darker evenings creep in the spooks of Britain are starting to stir. If you're looking for a real scream this Halloween why not brave one of our new Spooky Paddling Trails?!

Let our specially written routes take you on a terrifying journey, describing the gruesome ghouls and freaky phantoms you will meet along the way. The four new trails are each home to their own local terrors waiting to accompany you on your journey.

Each trail has a full route description as well as a link to a map and GPX all you need to worry about is escaping the clutches of the fiends along the way!

We're sure you will want to make your time on the water even more fun with a little fancy dress, for you and the boat! Don't forget to send us your spooky snaps taken along the way.
