Walks, River Trips & Wildlife

Hugely popular with walkers, birdwatchers and nature lovers, the tidal River Alde and surrounding marshes are a haven for hundreds of species of flora and fauna.


One of the best ways to explore the stunning natural landscape around Snape Maltings is on foot - from the circular loop through Snape Warren to the riverside walk to Iken Church. See Suffolk Coast & Heaths' walking guides here.

Cycling routes

Snape Maltings sits on the Suffolk Coastal Cycle Route 41, which takes the cyclist to Orford in one direction (15 miles) or Wickham Market Station via Blaxhall in the other direction (9 miles). On the way, you'll discover an ancient church and a castle set within the beautiful landscape. Explore Suffolk Coasts & Heaths' cycling guides here.

River Trips

Explore the landscape by boat. Departing from the historic quay, where generations of Thames Barge skippers have plied their trade, hop aboard Sea Tradar or Hagar and head out through the narrows down towards Iken.
