Right beside the road bridge in Wroxham in the heart of the Norfolk Broads is Norfolk Broads Tourist & Activity Centre (TheCanoeMan Shop), home to Activ-8 Adventure and TheCanoeMan. This is your gateway to adventure in and around the Broads and Norfolk.
At the shop in Wroxham you can arrange anything from a couple of hours cycle ride through to a week’s long adventure holiday. Canoes and kayaks are available to hire daily throughout the year as are top quality Ridgeback cycles.
Canoes and kayaks can be hired by the hour, half a day or almost any period you require, allowing you to explore along the beautiful River Bure and its villages of Wroxham, Coltishall, Horstead and Buxton.
For those who want to explore further afield the River Ant offers lots of opportunities to see much of the local wildlife from the stunning kingfishers through to the elusive otters.
On your journey down the Ant there are many quaint Norfolk villages to visit including Honing, Wayford Bridge, Neatishead, Irstead, Stalham, Sutton Staithe and Ludham. You can even stop off at the Tourist Information Centre at Toadhole Cottage at How Hill.
Cycling on some of Norfolk’s beautiful back roads will give access to some great local attractions such as Bewilderwood and Wroxham Barns. We have some great cycle routes ranging from small country lanes to off road on the Bure Valley trail alongside the Bure Valley Railway.
