COFFEE & NATURE KAYAK SAFARI...
This is an amazing opportunity to get out on the water and to expereince the stunning beauty and nature of Hickling Broad from a wonderfully different and totally magical perspective!
Our highly expereinced guides will meet you at our launch point with your kayak and all other equipment needed, ready for to be transported out on this amazing trip - and this is where the real adventure starts!
Using our super stable and easy to paddle, rudder controlled WaveSport Horizon double kayaks, your guided adventure to Hickling Broad will continue out on the water where there will be every opportunity for you to see/hear Marsh Harrier, Bearded Tits, Reed Buntings and Warblers, Avocets and perhaps Bittern, Otter, Water Voles and more. Of course we can't 'pre-book nature' - but in our expereince there's always something wonderful to see...!
The trip will take you though some of the sourrounding rivers then out on to Hickling itself, its back waters and in to a few of it's hidden gems which have a true 'Swallows & Amazons' vibe and definitely a feeling of getting away from it all!
This is the point where you'll stop, have an opportunity to get out and stretch your legs and enjoy a freshly brewed coffee (or tea) by the riverbank and heck - why not some delicious pastries or biscuits whilst you're at it..!
This trip is wonderful at any time of year in terms of peace, tranquility and the bonus of not too much in the way of other river traffic to to where we'll take you!
Your time on the water will last around 2.5 hours (with around 15 mins either end for paperwork and safety brief etc...) before heading back to the same launch point where you'll alight from your craft and ponder on the wonder that you'll have just expereinced!
A truly wonderful expereince and a must for visitors to the area and locals alike...this really is a special place!
