Choosing the trip that’s right for you...

You can choose any Canoe, Kayak or Stand up paddleboard trip from a half day, three quarter day or full day, or if you feeling particularly adventurous then why not dig out that tent and try a multi-day trip and paddle anything up to 100 miles of this stunning river.  

All trips finish at Symonds Yat West, we have a full day trip from Ross on Wye starting at 9am, then a shorter trip 3/4 day trip from Kerne Bridge at 11am, the 1pm slot at the moment is for paddle about from Symonds Yat West where you will not need a shuttle as you start and finish at the same place.  After deciding which canoe trip you fancy it's easy to quick to simply book online at for all self-guided trips or for guided trips or if you have any questions don't hesitate to call our friendly staff who are all professional canoe and kayak instructors to go through any questions you might have then you can book online and just sit back and relax until your Wye Valley adventure begins.

On the day of your trip you will meet your guide for the trip at our centre in Symonds Yat West where there is plenty of parking (pay & display), we will provide you all the KIT you need including dry barrels for your belongings, we will shuttle you and your guide to the start point and then you are off on your Wye Valley watery adventure.

Meeting Times

We ask that you aim to be at the centre approximately 30 minutes before your allotted time, please TRY NOT to arrive late as shuttles only leave at certain times to head up river.

Canoe / Kayak or Stand Up Paddleboard

Something to bear in mind is that although we hire both open canoes, single person kayaks and stand up paddleboards for self guided trips we only hire kayaks and paddleboards to people that have previous experience and in the case of kayaks experience of closed deck kayaks is a must (experience paddling sit on top kayaks doesn't count), we do not need any specific qualifications but mostly these are river journeys covering a fair distance each day so you have to be aware of what you are undertaking, kayaks and SUP's are single person craft (with limited load carrying ability) and very different to canoes. If customers book single person kayaks or SUP's and clearly do not have any experience when we launch them then I'm afraid their hire agreement would be terminated without refund.
