Autumn Colours on the Canal

Autumn is the season of breathtaking beauty and crisp adventures. If you're in search of a retreat immersed in nature's wonders, look no further than Narrowboat Day Hire. And guess what? We're offering a seasonal discount of 10% off our already lower seasonal rates, making it the perfect time to hop aboard and experience the joys of renting a narrowboat. Here are just a few of the reasons why autumn is a great time to explore the waterways:

A Tapestry of Colors:

As the temperatures begin to cool, nature puts on a mesmerising show, painting the landscape with vibrant hues of oranges, yellows, and reds. Being on a narrowboat allows you to witness this captivating transformation up close and personal. Gently glide through canals framed by a tapestry of autumnal colors and immerse yourself in the beauty that only this time of year can bring.

A Haven for Wildlife:

Autumn on the canals is not only a visual treat but also a chance to encounter wildlife in their element. With the quieter atmosphere, animals become more visible and active, rewarding observant boaters with enchanting sightings. From graceful deer grazing on the banks to mischievous badgers scurrying about, and elegant herons and swans gliding through the water – the possibilities for wildlife encounters are endless during this magical season.

A Feast for All Creatures:

While cruising along the canals, don't forget to take a moment to appreciate the natural bounty that autumn provides. Berries, nature's abundant gift, become a vital source of sustenance for small mammals such as wood mice and bank voles. Catch a glimpse as they busily stash away food for winter. Keep an eye out for fascinating fungi too, as they proudly display their remarkable shapes, sizes, and colors along the towpath.

Capture the Moments:

For photography enthusiasts, renting a narrowboat in autumn offers endless opportunities to capture the essence of the season. The outstanding photos featured in this post are all the work of Dave Wilcox from the Upminister Camera Club. Their recent outing is a great example of what amazing variety of colours and natural views that await you on your trip. There's no better time to sharpen your photography skills than surrounded by the wonders of nature.

Convenient location:

No matter the time of year, location is key. Narrowboat Day Hire is in the middle of the wonderful Chiltern Hills and situated right between the charming towns of Tring and Berkhamstead off the A41. Both villages also offer convenient rail links to London and beyond.
