A great morning with Hereford Canoe Hire
An excellent, fun experience. Superbly organised from meeting up, transporting to starting point, briefing, practice to canoeing down the Wye.
Ideal for novice and experienced canoeists alike. The beautiful River Wye was running high and the briefing taking us through it all, including what to do if capsize or end up in the water, left our group a little nervous (only 2 had previously canoed before), but the initial putting into practice what Andy had gone through whilst we were still in calm water at the start soon brought the confidence back. Andy kindly took some group photos, then we were off.
We went for the half day package, which gave us an 8 mile row back to Hoarswithy. The river was beautiful scenery, with friendly fishermen who both encouraged and laughed when we steered towards the trees or got blown off course by the wind!
The canoeing was gentle in places and hardwork in others - having successful negotiated the river we arrived back to Lucksall where Andy helped us exit the boats (the beach at Lucksall was no longer visible due to rising water).
Our group had a wonderful time and was the perfect end to our week stay in Herefordshire.
Thoroughly recommend booking a trip with Hereford Canoe Hire - great value for money, great organisation, great fun and great way to see the countryside from the river. Perfect whether you are a novice or experienced. Read more
