Egg Hunt by Canoe

Daily between 8 and 18 April, enjoy an egg-cellent guided paddle with New Forest Activities, along the Beaulieu River in stable ‘Canadian style’ canoes. Spend time taking in the stunning scenery of the river before disembarking for an egg hunt along the riverside, then you’ll have another beautiful scenic paddle back to base. So a kind of virtuous egg-cercise! Strongly recommended! Details here.
