We say

Mark Wilkinson - otherwise known as 'The CanoeMan' – is the ultimate rat-race escapee: he gave up his job as a financial advisor five years ago to paddle the Broads and hasn't looked back. He now offers a wide range of mainly canoe-based activities, from straight canoe and kayak rental from a range of locations (including Wroxham, Horning, Coltishall, Buxton and Beccles), guided canoe trails in different places not otherwise easily navigable by boat, both during the day and at night, wildlife trails, one- and two-day bushcraft experiences and canoe camping trips on which you stay in one of Mark's carefully positioned waterside teepees. They also run a variety of themed trips, varying from fab Swallows & Amazons adventures for kids to river snorkelling and paddle boarding. They also have bikes for rent from their office by the bridge in Wroxham. A great place to start any discovery of the Broads.
