We appreciate the history and the experience of canoeing on the Wye. We want you to leave with a deeper appreciation of the environment and history of this historic river. We aim to offer you a complete and rewarding canoe hire experience on the River Wye you`ll remember for a long time.



You initially arrive at our canoe hire centre in Symonds Yat West where you familiarise yourself with the finish point. We then issue you with the equipment you need and give you some safety information. We then transport you from our Canoe Hire Centre, up river to the starting point of your Canoe Trip and you paddle (downstream) back to us. Depending on how long you want to Hire a Canoe for will depend on how far upstream from Symonds Yat we will transport you. All trips finish back at our Canoe Hire Centre in Symonds Yat.



Our canoeing adventures on the River Wye are suitable for all levels of ability, most of our customers have either never canoed before or have only done it a handful of times, some of our customers will return 3 or 4 times a year building up their confidence and ability and taking on longer and more difficult sections of the Wye. We cater for family days out, couples looking for an adventure, groups of friends having fun, corporate team building, Hen and Stag parties and even 4 day expedition holidays.



Some of our shorter Canoe Hire Trips include the Half Day and the Three Quarter Day options, the half day hire is about 3 hours of gentle downstream paddling and the three quarter day option is the same distance but you get an extra hour or so to enjoy a picnic lunch en route, these options are ideal for a mini adventure for everyone to enjoy. Details of these trips can be found below.


Our best value for money trip is the 1 Day trip from Ross on Wye to Symonds Yat. For only an extra £5/£10 you get to spend all day on the river with an extra 3 hours of gentle downstream paddling. This quiet section of river tends to be more tranquil and teeming with wildlife. You also get to see the magnificent Goodrich castle from the North side which can only be viewed from the river. Details of this trip can be found below.



If you are looking for more of a challenge, then perhaps one of our Multiday Trips is what you are looking for? Spend a few days out in the wilderness, canoeing during the day and camping next to the river overnight. You can really get away from the stresses of the real world by cooking your dinner over a campfire and laying out under the stars. Details of our multiday trips can be found below.
