Norfolk Broads Walks

The Norfolk Broads National Park is a great place for anyone who enjoys walking regardless of age and ability. There are over 190 miles of footpaths, nature trails and country lanes that connect the pretty Broadland villages with the surrounding countryside. From long distance paths to short circular walks, walking the Norfolk Broads is a great way to explore the National Park and discover the unique beauty of the area.

We have put together a collection of walks in the Norfolk Broads some of which can be easily accessed from moorings, perfect if you are on a Norfolk Broads Boating holiday. Alternate starting points for those arriving by car have also been included.

Walking in the Norfolk Broads can be enjoyed as part of your Norfolk Broads Holiday, our cruisers and cottages provide a fantastic base for exploring or if you are just visiting the Broads for a day why not hire a day boat for the day and combine it with one of the walks below for a fun family day out.

Planning your Walk

Look up routes in advance

Our Norfolk Broads walking routes below are a great place to start. However if you prefer to get of the beaten track we recommend OS Explorer map OL 40 The Broads.

Consider the time of year and dress appropriately

In autumn and winter paths are likely to be muddy and possibly whilst in summer you might see a lot of stinging nettles.

Be prepared

A good backpack will store your map as well as water and snacks, throw a waterproof and sun cream in there as well and you will be prepared for all eventualities.

Transport

If your walk doesn’t end near your mooring or accommodation or if you are planning a linear walk you may need to consider public transport or a taxi
