Salhouse Broad is the perfect place to try canoeing for the first time. The sheltered Broad has peaceful old wherry cut to explore, why not try our 1 hour for £10 option? For those who wish to travel a bit further, destinations Horning or Ranworth are easily reachable within the 3 and 6 hour hire options.
The River Bure can be busy at the height of the season but it is certainly a worthwhile paddle. Alder carr woodland and marshland surrounding the area are home to abundant specialist wildlife including reed warbler, swallowtail butterfly, Norfolk hawker, marsh harrier and many others.
Please note that the 1hour charge restricts exploring to within the boundaries of the Broad. Paddles, buoyancy aids, dry bags, a safety talk and start up tuition are all provided.
1 hour: £10, 3 hours: £22, 6 hours: £33, 24 hours: £40.
