Caravan holidays go hand in hand with outdoor pursuits and keeping active. To help its members try new things and stay healthy, the Caravan and Motorhome Club has announced a new partnership with British Canoeing.

Being a member of the Caravan and Motorhome Club provides access to hundreds of attractions and activities around the world. Following a recent deal, British Canoeing is now an Official Accommodation Partner of the Club and will be introducing deals and offers to all of those with a Club membership.

Brian Morgan, head of events and communications at the Club, said: "We are beyond pleased to be working with British Canoeing. We know that 2020 has seen a huge resurgence of people taking part in activities on the waterways.

"Many of our members enjoy canoeing, kayaking and stand up paddleboarding, so it's great to be able to offer even more choice of activities with such a renowned organisation as British Canoeing".

This new partnership is a strategic one for the Club, which is looking to promote outdoor activities in 2021. Club sites will be added to British Canoeing's PaddlePoints website to help paddlers plan their trips and accommodation.

Meanwhile, Club members will have access to discounts on British Canoeing products and services in the new year. Members will soon be able to head to the organisation's website to see how to access these benefits.

Mr Morgan added: "The Club offers a choice of some 2,700 beautiful campsite locations, many by waterways, both in the UK and Europe. There's a perfect destination for everyone wanting to get out, explore and have adventures. This new strategic partnership aligns perfectly with both audiences and will have mutual benefits for members of both organisations."

Samantha Rankin, head of membership and customer services at British Canoeing, said: "We are delighted to welcome the Caravan and Motorhome Club to the British Canoeing family. This partnership has many mutual benefits to each organisation's respective members, and will go a long way to linking our outdoor enthusiast paddlesport family with the ability to access some of the best touring sites available in the UK and Europe".

Are you planning on expanding your outdoor activities list in 2021? We have made it our mission to try at least one new thing next year on our touring adventures. Make the new year one of activity, fitness and health.
