Discover one of Suffolk’s outdoor gems - Iken Canoe canoe and kayak hire centre. Take a canoe, kayak or stand up paddleboard (SUP) and glide along the beautiful river Alde. Tell the kids to keep an eye out for birds and see who can spot the most!

Never done canoeing or kayaking before? Experience is not a must, even kids as young as 7 are welcome to give it a try. Iken Canoe will make sure you’re prepared before you set sail. You’ll receive in-depth safety briefing and basic training before you get on board. And if you still don’t feed confident, you are free to change your mind.

Not a good swimmer? There’s nothing to worry about - you’ll wear buoyancy aids the whole time you’re on the water. However, you still must be able to swim to be allowed on-board. Iken Canoe takes your safety seriously.
