Every season on the Broads offers something spectacular to see. Summer is a popular choice of travel with longer daylight hours offering more cruising time & stunning late sunsets, but Spring offers a quieter time to travel the Broads with emerging wildlife in abundance & popular with fishermen whilst pike season is at its peak. Autumn on the Norfolk Broads is very picturesque with changing autumnal colours and a photo opportunity at every turn. You’re quite likely to spot an otter at this time of year too. Winter surprisingly is a popular choice of boating holiday. Think crisp sunny days with mirror like reflections on the Broads, pubs with roaring fires, plentiful mooring spots & migratory birds to be seen almost everywhere.
