We’ve selected some of the best winter activities/ adventure sports for you to try in Norfolk
From bird-watching to literally flying high, driving high performance cars, through to a round of golf, horse-riding or a hike through the countryside and snow-boarding, Norfolk has plenty to offer the keen outdoor enthusiast in Winter!
RSPB Snettisham is perfect for Twitchers
Even in bad weather, the hides are well positioned so you can enjoy early morning views of all the amazing wildlife; sunset across the Wash, waders and thousands of pink-footed and greylag geese coming in to roost on the mud. Need to watch the Tides timetable and find out in advance in order to get good views of the birds coming back in at night.
The Lotus Driving Academy offers drivers the opportunity to drive the latest Lotus models at the manufacturer’s facility in Hethel, near Norwich
There’s a ‘Scare yourself Sensible’ package through to the intensive ‘Gold’ course. For license holders over the age of 21. This has to feature among some of the best winter activities/ adventure sports to try in Norfolk.
Try a fantastic flying experience, this one does depend on the weather though!
Take to the skies from Ludham Airfield in a two-seat aerobatic plane. Try your first Roll then a Loop the Loop and then the Stall Turn and other fun moves. Flying is available all year round but of course can only take place in suitable weather.
For all you keen golfers who fancy a round while you are away
Swaffham Golf Club offers friendly pro shop staff and the course is a great challenge. Nice Club house with friendly chef and attentive bar staff.
Horse riding for all levels of experience through a beautiful country estate set in Worstead
North Norfolk is a great place to go riding through woodland, parkland, lakeside, fields and tracks.
Even after a downpour, the hacking here is amazing, say the visitors, just going to prove that you can have fun outdoors all year round! Gorgeous lake, wildlife. lovely woodland bridleways and fabulous views over the beautiful Norfolk countryside with its wide-open skies.
Some of the Best Winter Activities/ adventure sports to try in Norfolk can be found at the Norfolk Snowsports Club, Whitlingham Lane, Trowse, Norwich
Tubing is the most popular activity here, a bit like tobogganing, you sit inside a large ‘doughnut’ shaped tube and fly down the slope! You can also try skiing and snowboarding. Lessons are from 5 years of age and tubing from 6 years and snowboarding from 10.
Lovely nature walks for all the family at High Ash Farm
This farm is a haven for wildlife and cultivated for wild flowers and herbs is a lovely place to walk and enjoy the countryside. A short way out of Norwich and located next to the roman town of Venta Icenorum in the village of Caistor St Edmund, the fields have trails round their margins for walkers and horse riders. Hilly and peaceful and highly recommended. Beautiful all year round and definitely one of the best winter activities – even if not technically classed as adventure sports – to try in Norfolk.
