An old favourite updated!

By popular demand, we have combined our original two tours, and now offer a 5-day holiday travelling along the River Wye.

A leisurely five-day guided tour along the beautiful river Wye, taking time out for sightseeing, camping on the way.  

Travelling as a self-sufficient group during the day, each evening you will arrive at a campsite where your tents will be ready erected. One night may be spent at a riverside B&B or hostel.

The tour starts at Glasbury on Wye and ends in Monmouth, paddling at the foot of the Black Mountains and passing through the Historic Border town of Hay on Wye, famous for its many bookshops, and the Herefordshire Cider Country before arriving in the Historic border City of Hereford, where we will take time out for sightseeing.

It is possible to finish or join in Hereford, for a 2.5 day tour.

From Hereford we paddle through gentle countryside and the more rugged Symonds Yat Gorge, shooting the rapids on the way! The energetic can ascend to the top of Symonds Yat Rock where the view is truly spectacular, and you may be rewarded by a sighting of the Peregrines. For the less energetic there are pubs, teashops and woodland walks.

The tour ends in Monmouth, another historic Welsh Border town.

Canoeing equipment, tent, sleeping bags/mats, crockery/utensils, stove with fuel are included. You just need your clothing, food and personal items. No previous experience of canoeing is needed, as we will teach you the basics before we set off.
