Wye Valley Canoes

We are situated on the banks of the River Wye just a few yards from Glasbury Bridge

At Wye Valley Canoes you can hire Canadian canoes, double kayaks or single kayaks and paddle off downstream to Hay-on-Wye which is 5 miles and will take you 2 hours, or to the Boat Inn at Whitney which is approx 10 miles and will take you 4 hours.


For the more adventurous try camping or B&B'ing it down the Wye. When you reach your destination you telephone us and we come and collect you in our minibus and return you to your car in Glasbury.

You can hire -
Kayaks for one person only
Double kayaks for two people only
Canadian canoes are ideal for two adults and a small child.

Hire Includes:

- Boat
- Paddles
- Buoyancy aids
- Waterproof barrels

Whether you are off for a few hours or a few days we provide all the equipment you will need - boat, paddle, buoyancy aid, waterproof barrels to store your kit and a map. This equipment and recovery by minibus from wherever you get to is included in the hire charge. We give you a safety talk before you set out but no previous experience is necessary in the canoes or the double kayaks. Previous experience preferred for kayaking.
