Hickling Broad, Norfolk Broads

Hickling Broad, Norfolk Broads
Location Type: Sea

Make no mistake, the Norfolk Broads are a SUP haven. Flat and winding, they’re great for all levels of paddleboarder, especially SUP beginners. Made up of 120 miles of navigable waterways, there are literally endless trips you could take along its network of 7 rivers and 63 broads. Hickling, the largest of Norfolk’s Broads, is dotted with quaintly picturesque, thatched cottages and boathouses, and edged with expansive reed beds making it a great spot to see some of the UK’s rarest wildlife. No deeper than 3 metres, the impression of vastness you get whilst entering the broad comes from the big skies and wide horizon rather than its depth, and the 9-mile round trip into it starting at Potter Heigham Bridge makes for a great day out exploring Hickling’s maze-like trove of aquatic nooks and crannies. Remember though, to paddle on the Broads you need a license which you can obtain easily from The Broads Authority.
