This river trip is a fantastic introduction to paddling, especially for those with younger children, as you are only in the boat for just over an hour each way, allowing them to enjoy a more manageable river journey, at a leisurely pace. It starts on Bedford’s Victorian Embankment at a local café before heading off to explore Bedfordshire’s the rural countryside by canoe or kayak or SUP.  The river banks are teeming with wildlife with birds of prey, herons, the occasional grass snake and flitting electric blue kingfishers. There is just 1 portage point, at the half way point, where you can enjoy a picnic on the edge of the country park, before setting off back upstream to where you first started.
