Fun for all the family


Many of the most beautiful parts of the Broads can only be seen by boat, and Canadian canoes are a great way to discover the delights of this fragile wetland. The Broads has so much beauty to offer, including smaller waterways which are havens for wildlife and perfect for exploring by canoe. You don't need to be experienced or extremely fit, this is a lovely way to get of the beaten track, take in the sights and sounds without the everyday stresses of life. Canoeing is also silent, so you'll be able to get closer to the wildlife, including water voles, great crested grebes and - if you're lucky - otters. We are able to advise you on how to handle the canoe safely and on a suitable route. Canoeing on the Broads is suitable for the whole family, including young children. Canadian canoes usually carry up to three adults. Price includes buoyancy aids and waterproof rucksacks.
