Depending on how long you want to go canoeing for will depend on how far upstream from Symonds Yat we will take you. Once you arrive at our canoe hire centre you will be fitted with a buoyancy aid and paddle and given a dry barrel to keep your personal possessions in. You will then be given a safety briefing and some basic instructions on how to paddle and steer the boat. You will leave your cars at our canoe hire centre and we will then transport you in our minibuses, with the canoes, upstream to your start point. We can hire you a canoe on the River Wye from half a day to a week. For more detailed information and maps visit our trips page on our website.
