In light of COVID-19, please make sure you check with your travel and accommodation providers before travelling.


The Electric Eel carries passengers on a wildlife water trail along the hidden dykes behind the How Hill National Nature Reserve, stopping at a bird hide on the way. On a sunny summer's day you are likely to see an abundance of amazing dragonflies and damselflies and in June and July the very rare Swallowtail butterfly that only lives in the Broads.
