CANOE AND KAYAK HIRE
For Glasbury canoe hire, prices start at only £25 per person per adult, and children are half price! Enjoy a paddle down the river Wye starting from The River Wye Activity Centre?
We can offer ample parking (free of course!) as well as showers, toilets and a cafe. This makes life before and after your trip easy and comfortable.
For school and youth groups as part of their activity program, we can provide a half or full day paddle, as well as multi-day trips too. Our school programs work on a different pricing structure, so contact us direct if you would like a quote!
HALF DAY: GLASBURY TO HAY
From Glasbury to Hay on Wye the trip is 5 miles or approximately 2 hours paddling. We also offer many other routes on the River Wye. Glasbury is a picturesque town with easy access to the river Wye, making it a great place to start this paddle downstream. It is popular with all groups, no matter what ability level they are at!
GLASBURY TO HAY
En-route from Glasbury to Hay-on-Wye groups can stop at the warren, which is a popular public area just above Hay-on-Wye. Here you will find some rapids that are great fun to paddle down when the river is at the right level. The warren is also a popular place for groups to stop for picnic’s and BBQ’s or you can stop at the Three Tuns pub, which is only meters away from the river at the bridge in Hay-on-Wye.
FULL DAY: GLASBURY TO WHITNEY
If you decide to paddle further than just Glasbury to Hay-on-Wye, the second section of river between Hay-on-Wye and Whitney-on-Wye (a further 5.5 miles) is just as stunning and as you leave the area, it doesn’t take long before you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere again.
On arriving into Whitney-on-Wye, you will pass under the toll bridge just half a mile from the finish point at The Boat Inn pub, near where the Pound B&B / Bunkhouse & Campsite is based.
Glasbury-on-Wye is also a great point to start from for full day trips to Whitney-on-Wye, two day trips to Preston on Wye or extended trips to Hereford, Ross-on-Wye, Symonds Yat, Monmouth and Chepstow. You are welcome to book into our bunkhouse or our campsite if you are planning a multi-day getaway.
