Guided Wildlife Canoe Trails at Strumpshaw Fen
Why not join us on a beautiful canoe trail passing around and through one of Norfolk’s loveliest wildlife reserves. This reserve has the full range of broadland habitats and wildlife. Walk round the reedbeds, woodlands and orchid-rich meadows and you could chance upon marsh harriers, bitterns and kingfishers. Come in spring and summer when the meadows bloom with flowers, and see an array of dragonflies and butterflies, including the spectacular swallowtail.
Each season brings a different experience at our nature reserves. In spring, the air is filled with birdsong as they compete to establish territories and attract a mate.
In summer, look out for young birds making their first venture into the outside world.
Autumn brings large movements of migrating birds - some heading south to a warmer climate, others seeking refuge in the UK from the cold Arctic winter.
In winter, look out for large flocks of birds gathering to feed, or flying at dusk to form large roosts to keep warm.
You will be met and led by one of our professional Canoe guides who will not only enlighten you to the art of canoeing but also introduce you to the local wildlife whilst taking a leisurely paddle through the reed beds of Rockland Broad and circum-navigating the reserve.
