Floating down the River, Suffolk
Explore two stunning Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty just an hour from London. Canoe along the River Stour through picturesque countryside then hike along the Stour Estuary on the Suffolk Coast.
On Saturday we’ll spend all day on the river journeying along the River Stour in the Debham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This is the landscape that inspired the painter Constable, so expect tree-lined waterways meandering through wide open spaces and past pretty traditional villages. Our route will take us past Flatford Mill, made famous by Constable’s painting The Haywain. We’ll be in stable Canadian canoes with an experienced guide so it is extremely unlikely anyone will go in the water and no prior experience is necessary.
On Sunday we’ll explore the estuaries of the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on a guided walk. Our route will depend on the group and conditions on the day, but expect wildlife and big skies.
We’ll stay together in a simple, ‘away from it’ all bunkhouse with a wood-burning stove and based within a working farm. Expect home cooked meals (let us know of dietary requirements in advance) and hanging out with like-minded people. If you've never come on an EC Adventure before, they're informal, friendly and great fun. We generally have singles, couples and small sets of friends coming along, from complete beginners to adventure professionals - what we all share is a love for adventure. Ages tend to range between mid 20s and mid 40s but anyone over 18 years old and young at heart is welcome.
The nearest station is Manningtree, only 3 miles away with central London just an hour away by train.
