We're OPEN - update: 4th April 2021
We were delighted to welcome our first guests of 2021 on Wednesday 31st March, to warm and sunny conditions.
During April we are running a limited programme, focusing on shorter local trips and operating under the rule of 6 (or two households), with full precautions to minimise risk to customers and staff. A fuller programme will resume from May 1st .
(The two campsites that we operate from will welcome campers from Monday 12th April 2021).
Just imagine what it would be like: drifting down the river, with the prospect of a pub lunch along the way. You are with your family or friends, enjoying some of the country’s best countryside, and can’t decide whether to have the home made steak pie or cheddar ploughmans!

About Hereford Canoe Hire
We occupy one of the quietest and safest stretches of the Wye and work hard to keep it that way, so our clients enjoy a safe and relaxing adventure.
This means that we choose not to deal with stag parties (sorry boys) and those who can spoil the enjoyment of other river users. Our stretch of the Wye is ideal for both the novice and family, or anyone who wants to be absorbed in this beautiful, quiet stretch of countryside. You can hire a canoe for any period from 2 hours to 5 days, so you paddle away at your own pace. We’re delighted to advise on routes and stopping places along the way where you can be fed and watered.
We provide a high level of service from the moment we meet and brief you, to the moment we pick you up. The team at Hereford Canoe Hire are enthusiasts about making a great day out for you. We’ve got great canoes and safety equipment and are keen for you to share our enjoyment of this wonderful river.
