    Canoeing in Norfolk
    Norfolk has a wealth of canoeing opportunities from small secluded rivers and the unique Broads to the estuaries and marshes of North Norfolk.

    For both day trips and longer journeys there is a great variety of canoeing to be done in unspoilt countryside with the chance to see some rare wildlife.

    The rivers and the Norfolk Broads

    Access to water is problematic throughout the country but generally in Norfolk we have greater freedom of access than in other parts of the UK, largely due to the work of the Local River Advisors (LRAs).

    We strongly advise you to contact the appropriate river adviser, given in useful contacts, to get up to date information on what the situation is for your planned trip. Failure to comply with agreed access arrangements could result in other canoeists being refused access in the future.

    The Norfolk Broads are a wealth of rivers and man-made lakes. To paddle on the Broads and any tidal rivers connected to them you must have a Broads Licence. BCU members however have a licence negotiated directly with the Broads Authority. You must have evidence of membership/licence with you on the Broads - you may well be asked for this.

    Plans are in progress to provide detailed guides of where you can paddle and where you can get access to the water and it is hoped in future that this site will link to these.

    The Broads Authority will, on request, send a list of launching places, although these are simply boatyards that are happy for us to launch, and may require payment!

    The Coast

    Canoeing on the sea is, of course, a potentially dangerous occupation and should only be done with appropriate training and safety considerations. North Norfolk offers some sheltered estuary canoeing at Blakeney Point and Brancaster/Burnham Overy although the tides and changing weather conditions can make these places dangerous.

    Whitewater

    Norfolk does not have any real whitewater but there are however one or two playholes
    that experienced paddlers use, for example Hellesdon Mill, Horstead Mill and Mendham Mill.

    Please seek advice before using any of these places and ensure that sessions are supervised by suitably qualified coaches.

    Norwich plans to have will a Whitewater facility in near future.
