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 8 years ago.

Most groups returned back year after year with the same folk, some of which are still returning 25 years later with their kids.

With our wealth of experience, knowledge of the area and good relationship with landowners we can plan a great multi-day trip down the Wye. You can choose how rough or smooth you want your accommodation to be and how many miles you want to cover and we’ll come up with an itinerary to match your wishes.  .  Please note that free camping is not allowed along the river Wye, but there are plenty of legitimate campsites, B&B's etc along the route.

Our prices are all inclusive: Trip planning advice, transport, canoes, paddles, buoyancy aids and dry storage expedition barrels. The only additional costs are your accommodation and food.
We ask you to meet us at our operating base at Tresseck Campsite in Hoarwithy, where you can park your car securely for the duration of your trip (parking is £3 per day, payable to the site)

Before booking your trip we like to discuss the details with you first as every experience is different.
