Canoeing Holidays

Whether you want to have fun splashing around on the water, drift gently downstream through some of Europe's most beautiful scenery or simply get a new perspective on familiar landscapes, a canoeing holiday is the perfect opportunity to do this.

From beginners to hardcore enthusiasts, there's always more to get out of a journey along the water. With plenty of opportunities to stop off and swim, picnic, hike or enjoy dinner in a local restaurant, you can choose to be as flexible as you like - or take an organised, guided tour if you prefer.

The British Canoe Union is a great resource if you want to learn more about canoeing. From the Highlands of Scotland to the verdant Dordogne, listed below we've got some of the best canoeing holidays in the UK and Europe, all reachable by train or ferry:
