Canoe trip on the River Bure

Delightful trip, well organised and such a beautiful location. No other boats around on the stretch of river we were on

Took the combined railway / canoe deal. A trip on the Bure Valley light railway from Wroxham to Buxton where we alighted, had some difficulty finding the meeting point as no signage (and no phone signal so unable to call office to check). A little late the Canoe Man team arrived and soon we were briefed and in the canoe.... More

We were picked up at Coltishall and driven to Buxton where we were helped into a two man canoe. We paddled downstream for a couple of hours, had that stretch of the river all to ourselves, not another boat in sight, just a few fishermen on the bank. It was idyllic, so peaceful and a very easy route for us... More

We did a guided trail from the Wroxham base. It was a lovely sunny day so the water was quite busy. Following a short tutorial we went off. The canoe was very stable and relatively easy to move through the water. We glided through the water very peacefully and were able to spot some wildlife and learn about the Broads.... More

Live in Norfolk and arrange a lot of canoe / kayak trips for a local social group. The Canoe Man is very pricey compared to the other Norfolk canoe hire places and never offer group discounts. Most of the other other canoe hire places are around half the price of Canoe Man and offer group discounts.

Management response:

I must admit to being surprised and disappointed at your review sgodfrey I have a few points in response : 1. We regularly offer group discounts to genuine organisations and groups - we offer 50% + discounts to Scouts & Guides just as an example. 2.From our records we can find no record of you ever having visited us ?...

4th year in a row going on a trip with The Canoe Man on a May Bank Holiday weekend. Excellent experience every time. Good pre trip communication - we had paddled the Bure for the last three years so wanted to see some new territory, and so they arranged for us to see the Waveney this year. Canoe guides have...

From the base in Wroxham we were driven to Buxton Lammas, which is upstream on the river. Here we were given lifejackets and a paddle, then walked a few yards down to the river bank. We helped launch one of the canoes into the water and were given some instruction about paddling the canoe. Neither my sister or I have... More

We have wanted to go on a guided canoe tour with this company for such a long time and eventually this morning we did it - why oh why did we wait so long?! The weather was wonderful and the canoe trail was perfect - so peaceful with hardly a boat in sight the whole morning. Our guide was lovely... More

We hired a 2 man canoe at Wroxham for half a day. So easy to get the hang of following simple and clear instructions. Beautiful and peaceful scenery. Relaxing and such fun. Would highly recommend for couples, families etc. give it a try, you won't regret it.
