Our large stag party weekend consisted of a canoe trail along the river Bure combined with an overnight stay in the woods for campfire food, ale and bush-craft instruction. What could have been a recipe for disaster was well organised and administered by the 'Canoe Man' team and was enjoyed by all; I would happily do it all again.

We booked a whole day "tour" whereby we cycled from Wroxham to Buxton alongside the Bure Valley Steam railway line, and then cycled back. Although we were given 2 hours for the cycling, it took us (a experienced cyclists) about 45 minutes, so we did some exploring before meeting the "canoe man" to swap bikes for a 2 person kayak...

A day of canoeing, bushcraft and archery - enjoyed immensely by myself and my two young children, as well as others in my party. We had never canoed before, and so I was apprehensive about the logistics, however our knowledgeable and helpful guides ensured that we knew the basics and were there to support when necessary. The children in particular... More

Lovely canoe trip (in mixed weather conditions for us!). We experienced average equipment and good customer service but little wildlife. However, the group of 12 that we were placed into included some novice canoeist and there was delays and a certain amount of 'faffing' as they bounced from one bank to the other meaning we didn’t get particularly far before...

An enjoyable couple hours in the very capable care of Mark. Learnt lots about what do do in a canoe and about the wildlife and fauna. A great way to see the Broads close up.

Lovely Swallow and Amazons trip, canoeing, fire lighting, den building and archery. All in a simply magical woodland setting. Expert guide. Our eleven year old LOVED it, and we did too. Canoeing not overly demanding so would suit a novice family.

No otters today but plenty of other things to look at in this most beautiful part of the country. Mark was chatty and informative on both the wildlife and history. A must do tour if you are in the area.

Glad you enjoyed your trip, sorry that you did not see any otters this time, although we have just seen one playing directly out the back of our office! More

Lovely day out for a great price. We even saw an Otter :) Super laid back service, which was lucky for us, we rowed much further than we were meant to and ended up being very late back, but we incurred no late fee just a simple request of calling when we returned to make sure we got back safe...

We had a great days canoeing down from Buxton to Wroxham. A relaxing and beautiful route. We booked in at Wroxham and were taken in minibus to Buxton, in order to paddle back to Wroxham with a stop at Coltishall for a pub lunch. The equipment was good, the staff very informative and helpful. A lovely day.
