River Wye
The River Wye is one of the classic places to go canoeing in the British Isles. This lovely river offers day trips or week long canoe or kayak adventures. The traditional canoe touring sections of the Wye are between Glasbury near Hay-on-Wye, and Monmouth. This typically offers 6-7 days of canoeing, which can be broken into various shorter paddles. There are numerous small riffles on the River Wye, and a few slightly larger rapids. The biggest rapids are the famous ones at Symonds Yat, which are typically Grade II and have been "improved" to offer more fun for kayakers and canoeists alike. There are a large number of canoe and kayak hire outfitters on the Wye, most are based out of Monmouth, Ross, Hereford, Hay or Glasbury.
