Bike and Canoe Hire

If you would like to see the Broads from another perspective then why not opt for a canoe hire or cycle ride.

Leave the boat behind and explore the Norfolk Broads

The Broads is a huge amount of woodland, fields and waterways and there are so many hidden treasures which can only be found on foot, or in a small boat. When you’re on your Norfolk Broads holidays, take a bike ride or hire a canoe and explore some of the less-known areas of the Broads National Park.
