Trip Itinerary

Starting in a picturesque riverside pub on the River Bure we are going to wind our way through some of Britain’s most stunning hidden backwaters enjoying quieter stretches of Norfolk’s stunning broads. Paddling from Coltishall we will canoe or kayak down to Salhouse Broad one of the best-hidden gems of the East.

You will arrive on Friday night to meet your group at the Salhouse Broad campsite and relax in the lovely campsite enjoying an evening camp meal. In the morning we will shuttle upstream to the put-on and enjoy a leisurely ‘lilly dip’ with our instructors and paddle back to our campsite.  The route takes us past rural village churches and past the Broads town of Wroxham before heading more off-grid onto Salhouse Broad.

After a second night camping with the team including a hearty evening meal and lovely breakfast, we will strike camp and paddle onwards along the Bure. The Bure marshes are listed as a National Nature Reserve.  The river winds towards the sleepy village of Horning and onwards to the confluence of River Ant.  We pass St Benet’s Abbey and the Cross of Peace before finishing this trip at Acle.
