Coltishall Canoe, Kayak & SUP Hire


Drift downstream from
Coltishall
Dog Friendly Activity

Our canoe, kayak and paddleboard hire centre is situated at the Rising Sun pub garden, nestled on the edge of the beautiful River Bure, next door to Coltishall Common.

Coltishall is a wonderful Norfolk village with many local amenities in a picturesque rural setting. The River Bure flowing through is a gently meandering river, with lots of peaceful corners to explore.

As Coltishall is the highest navigable point to motor traffic, it is a relatively quiet stretch of river as few venture up this far. The river narrows as you head further upstream, making wildlife sightings on or around the banks regular.

If you require more places then currently available for booking online please contact the office as we may be able to arrange this for you.
