Buxton To Coltishall One-Way Hire

Buxton to Coltishall
Away from the hustle and bustle 

This is our most popular canoeing trip, from Buxton Mill down the beautiful River Bure.

The trip starts at 11:30am, where we pick you up from our base in Coltishall and drive you to our launch point at Buxton Mill. Here, your boat and equipment and boat are waiting, and after instruction and a short safty briefing, you are launched into the wilderness of Norfolk

Our one-way hire means that you don't have to paddle back upstream again - just enjoy the ride! We will transport you and your canoe to the get-in point; you just need to drift back down again. This is a great way to see the Norfolk Broads, going downstream and only having to paddle to keep your boat moving. You will be able to enjoy exclusive access to the unseen parts of the Broads, away from the crowds of other boats and motorboats.

The Broads are known for their wildlife, including swans, kingfishers, herons and even otters. You can get up close to these animals on your trip through the marshy terrain of the broads. This is a truly chilled and relaxed activity for anyone who wants to get away from it all.

Private Craft : The launch venue for this activity is not available for public launching.
