(Please note there is NO luggage service on this trip, so packing LIGHT is vital.  You will need book at St Neots campsite yourself due to their insurance reasons)

This is an adventure to remember!  You will get to see some of the most stunning river and countryside England as to offer.  You will paddle yourselves into 2 fantastic camping locations, using only the canoe as your mode of transport, away from the common trappings of modern life.  You will begin at Kempston Mill on a rural stretch of the river, shortly afterwards, you reach the beautiful Bedford's Victorian Embankment where you can grab tea, cake and other food. Your portage onto the lower river at Longholme Cafe and  re-join the countryside to arrive at Matchstick Wood.  You will get your own private clearing in the woodland, complete with long drop loo, log store and most importantly campfire, to sit round under the starry night sky. 

Once you’ve pitched your tent, have the campfire roaring with the wine/ beer cooling in the brook this trip will seem like the ideal tonic to a busy life, allowing you to time to relax after a good days paddle. The following day, you will have a stunning paddle through some of the best voted wild swimming sites in the UK, winding your way through the leafy countryside before arriving in St Neots Campsite on the edge of the market town.  After another peaceful night, you will hit the water for the final day and re-live some of the sight from the day before, finishing at Great Barford.
