About Little Canada

Little Canada is perfect for an inspiring learning-outside-the-classroom adventure. There's private access to the river for dragon boating and raft building sessions; great ways to develop teamwork and communication skills. Back on dry land, there are zip wires, giant swings, tunnel trails and lots more to engage and motivate your students.

Many secondary school groups use Little Canada as a base to explore the beautiful landscape on the Isle of Wight on a PGL Field Studies course. The rich environmental diversity offers a wealth of learning possibilities in Geography, Geology, Biology and Environmental Science. Accommodation is cosy, comfortable and all en suite.
