Cost: £55 – per canoe per day
A trip like no other!
My first experience of canoeing was spending most summers from the age of 8 assisting (or hindering) my uncle Pete run his summer canoe trip business on the Wye. We would spend 3-6 weeks most summers, canoeing down from Glasbury to Mordiford (approx 40miles) over 5 great days. Each day would consist of a morning dip, “hearty” breakfast, breaking camp, 4-5hrs of brilliant fun on the river, pitching camp, an evening meal cooked over the stove or fire and then a song or two around a camp fire (or a visit to the pub in the later years)! Just great.
I think it was these memories which motivated me to take the business over from my uncle 5 years ago.
Most groups returned back year after year with the same folk, some of which are still returning 25years later with their kids.
With this experience, knowledge of the area, and good relationship with the landowners I can plan a great multi day trip down the Wye for my clients. You can choose how “rough or smooth” you want your accommodation and how many miles you want to cover and I’ll come up with an itinerary to match your wishes. Our prices are all inclusive: Transport, canoes, paddles, PFD’s and storage. The only additional costs are your accommodation and food.
Below are just a few examples of popular multi-day trips.
2 Days – Hereford to Ross-on-Wye (27.5miles).
Day 1 – Hereford to Hoarwithy – 17miles
Day 2 – Hoarwithy to Ross-on-Wye 10.5miles
4 Days – Glasbury to Lucksall, Mordiford (38.5miles)
Day 1 – Glasbury to Whitney – 8miles
Day 2 – Whitney to Preston-on-Wye – 11miles
Day 3 – Preston-on-Wye to Hereford – 11miles
Day 4 – Hereford to Lucksall – 8.5miles
We like to provide a good, personal level of service and don’t over commit. We therefore only cater for one large multi day trip per weekend
