After we realized that the information on their website is misleading and incorrect and it would have been impossible for us to participate we called to cancel our trip (this was done within *20 minutes* of booking). Not only they refused to cancel the charges, but they are completely ignoring all my requests of mediation. I travel a lot for... More

I booked a couple of friends and myself on to the fire-making course, as I'd been wanting to learn more about bush craft for some time. It was run by The Canoe Man instructors Munki and Aaron.

Although it was pouring with rain as we started out, we enjoyed every minute. The welcome, the encyclopaedic knowledge of the local flora... More

My 15 year old and I loved this! It was really good fun being part of a group, even strangers! Our leader was lovely and helpful and it is a beautiful place to be. Gorgeous in the evening! Will definitely go again - fantastic activity.

A short drive from the base in Wroxham by mini bus to a secret location close to the river Bure. We then had a 40 - 50 minute paddle to the hide out in a thick forest. The camp fire was soon ignited by our leader for the day (Monkey). In what seemed no time at all the kettle was... More
