Seeing north Norfolk by bike allows you to beat the traffic while taking in the views and there are lots of cycling trails to enjoy while you're here.

If you don't have a bike, there are plenty of places to hire them throughout north Norfolk from tandems to bikes with trailers for children. You can even arrange to have your hired bikes delivered straight to your accommodation. Huff & Puff Cycles is based at Kelling Heath Holiday Park where you can hire bikes or arrange delivery to where you are staying. 

If you need a bit more pedal power, try hiring an ebike from Torque E-Bikes. These cycles come with electric bike motors which will give you assistance up to 15.5 mph. You can go faster than this but you’ll have to put the pedal power in yourself!

Or explore the Broads National Park with a day boat hire, or cruiser for a longer trip, to explore the magical lock-free waterways, stopping off at towns and villages along the way.

For those who are up for a bit of paddle-power, try stand up paddle boarding on the Broads and along the coast, or explore canals and waterways by kayak or canoe. Quiet and tranquil Dilham Canal is nearly nine miles long and is Norfolk’s only locked wherry sailing canal. It runs from Antingham, north west of North Walsham, to Wayford Bridge, west of Stalham and is ideal for canoeing, kayaking and stand up paddleboarding.
