Activity Highlights:

Join our canoe rental service for a multi-day adventure along the River Wye. Enjoy camping, cooking outdoors, and campfires while exploring the scenic surroundings. These trips are the perfect blend of relaxation and adventure, and are self-guided.

Itineraries

Our trips are self-guided. Our service includes either taking you upstream to the beginning of your journey, allowing you to drift or paddle back to where your vehicle is parked, or collecting you from your downstream destination to bring you back to the start.

Upon your arrival, you’ll be greeted warmly and equipped with buoyancy aids, paddles, and dry barrels for your belongings, all suited to your size.

Before you set off, we’ll conduct a comprehensive briefing on the shore, covering how to safely enter and exit your canoe, the basics of paddling and steering, recognising and avoiding potential hazards, and what to do if you capsize.

Once equipped and briefed, we’ll assign you one or more of our spacious, stable canoes. With our final advice and encouragement, you’ll be ready to launch and begin your adventure down the river.

Our multi-day trips are priced at £40 per person, per day.

You can choose from the following:

2 Day Trip – Hereford to Ross-on-Wye (28 miles):

Frequently Asked Questions

All of our canoes have two fixed seats with an optional clip-in seat for a third person. Some of our larger family canoes can accommodate 2 adults and up to 2 smaller children, but it’s best not to overload the boat.

This is one of our most commonly asked questions and can be quite challenging to answer as we follow strict ratios based on the following age groups:

  • Ages 4 to 11 – one adult per child
  • Ages 12 to 15 – two children per adult
  • Ages 16 to 17 – three children per adult

Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate children under the age of 4. If your children are under 12 years old, we require one adult per child.

All of our trips include transport to or from your start/finishing point. Details about your specific trip will be given closer to the time. 

Wear loose and lightweight clothing, trainers, aqua boots or full sandals. Dress according to the unpredictable British weather, preferably with layers that can be added or removed. Avoid wellington boots, flip flops, or jeans, and anything you’re not prepared to get splashed. Wear waterproof and windproof layers as the sun can be strong but the wind can be cold, especially in spring/autumn.

Stay hydrated with plenty of fluids and snacks, and remember to bring high-factor sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat. Bring a top for warmth and dryness, and a full change of clothes just in case. We provide waterproof storage, so pack light and bring only what you need for clothing and food.

Mobile phone and data coverage on the river may be weak, but you could find some signal along the way, especially at hotspots such as Hereford and Ross-On-Wye. So, take the chance to unwind and disconnect from the outside world. Ignore those notifications and enjoy the peaceful river environment.

For your safety, we operate a zero-tolerance to alcohol on the river.  Anyone found under the influence of alcohol or any other substances will not be permitted to hire or participate. We do not allow alcohol to be taken on your trip and reserve the right to confiscate it until your return. If you’d like to enjoy a drink, please do so responsibly once your canoe adventure is complete – you may well find us in the pub when we’re done for the day too!

Except for the occasional public canoe launch, all the river banks are privately owned, so free camping is strictly forbidden.

Besides, there are plenty of cool campsites strategically located down the river for you to stay at safely and legally.

We rarely cancel a trip if it’s raining so make sure you bring the right kit to stay warm and dry. Once you’re out on the river, you won’t even notice! Your safety is paramount to us and in extreme weather conditions or if the river level is unsuitable, sadly we won’t be able to operate and will contact you in the hope we can get you out on the river again as soon as possible.

Smaller and well-behaved dogs are welcome to join us for canoeing. The reason we do not allow larger dogs is that their weight can move around randomly in the canoe, making it unstable and increasing the risk of a capsize. Similarly, more active or excitable dogs that tend to move around or jump out to swim can also cause instability.

However, we have had many dogs canoe with us successfully, and the decision to bring your dog depends on your judgement. We do not provide buoyancy aids for dogs as we have yet to encounter a dog that cannot swim.

We request that you do not tie your dog to the canoe, as it may cause entanglement in the unlikely event of a capsize.

Please use our booking form to enquire about your preferred dates. We will then get in touch to discuss your options. 

Alternatively, use the online chat on this page to speak to a member of the team at Adventuro, who will be happy to assist!
