Canoes have the advantage of being totally silent, allowing you to get closer to wildlife whilst enjoying the beautiful landscape of the Waveney Valley, and can be enjoyed by any age.
Swans, herons and kingfishers can be seen on the river and, in the summer beautiful damselflies, butterflies and dragonflies. Although otters are living in the river they are not easily seen.
Canoe hire is available at Bungay from Outney Meadow Caravan Park. Children accompanied by an adult are welcome and safety on the water is always very important so be aware of the safety rules
Prices for a Canadian canoe are £24.00 for half day £35.00 per day (9.00AM to 6.00PM)
