Cambridge Kayak Hire

Kayak Hire Cambridge

Single Kayak Hire

Kayaks are designed to make travel by river smooth and are lots of fun too. They offer the perfect choice for your own adventure along the upper river, out towards Grantchester Meadows and beyond. There are plenty stop off points on the route and you'll get the chance to see Cambridge's diverse wildlife species in action.

Kayaking is popular and is also great exercise. Choose this option to explore by paddle, have fun and get a great upper body work out while you're at it!
