Canoe Trails in Norfolk

Canoe trails in Norfolk 

Alderfen Marshes provides the perfect base from which to set out on canoe trails in Norfolk. Explore the isolated tranquility of Surlingham, Bargate and Rockland broads, just a short paddle from the marshes.  Venture onto the River Yare to access the Norfolk Broads from Norwich to Great Yarmouth. Choose from a short paddle to a full canoe trail, enjoying the sights and sounds of the broads.

Canoeing offers a perfect way to access the remote waterways.  Our 14′ Scout Elite and 16′ Mackinaw Canadian canoes include a cool-box storage area for picnics and drinks.  Ideal for friends, family or team outings, we provide you with buoyancy aids and maps as well as paddling and safety instructions.

Situated in Surlingham, on the Wherryman’s Way walk, Alderfen Marshes are a 15 minute drive from Norwich. Minibus transport to and from the site is available on request.  Booking is essential.

There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing around in boats.
