Sail a canoe in Suffolk during your Barns and Barges stay

Iken Cliff

Last Updated on August 5, 2022

Did you know that you can hire a canoe in Suffolk to explore the breathtaking River Alde? It’s a unique way to see Suffolk’s rural and riverside beauty – and you can access canoe hire near your Woodfarm Barges or Barns location!

Canoeing is great fun for all the family, a stress-reducing form of exercise and an opportunity to seek out photo-worthy views of the local landscapes.

As you’re canoeing in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you’ll all see many different types of wildlife that you may not see in other parts of the county, like seals and river dwelling birds.

If this sounds like your idea of fun, just head to Iken Canoe, located at Iken Cliff, a stunning area along the River Alde which was once a busy trade route for corn exports. Here, you can hire canoes, kayaks or paddleboards starting from as little as £15 for an hour.
