The Fen Rivers Way, a long distance path running for nearly 80kms (50 miles) between the historic settlements of Cambridge and King’s Lynn, traces the course of rivers that drain slowly across the Fens into the Wash.
The route takes you through the distinctive Fens landscape on a path rich in history and wildlife.
Taking in the internationally significant environment of the Ouse Washes, the journey follows the River Great Ouse through the dramatic open skyscapes and past the massive floodbanks that protect the low lying Fens. Taking in the historic city of Ely, and the Cam Washes, the route finishes in Cambridge.
At King’s Lynn, the Fen Rivers Way connects with the Wash Coast Path (through the Peter Scott Walk) taking walkers along the remote coast marshes into Lincolnshire, or the Nar Valley Way which leads you into the heart of Norfolk.
