Wye Canoes Wild Adventure Weekend

This is the Big One!

Canoeing, Gorge Scrambling, Climbing or Caving

All in One Weekend!

If you are looking for a Special Adventure Weekend with your friends, family or group then we have something we think you will love.

Start your adventure at our base in Symonds Yat West and it’s time to meet your Highly Experienced Guides and off to Kerne Bridge to start your action packed weekend with the canoe trip on Saturday from Kerne Bridge to Redbrook. We provide you buoyancy aids, dry bags or barrels for whatever you wish to take with you and then we are off to Kerne Bridge just below Goodrich Castle to begin your watery adventure.

Accompanied by our Highly Experienced Guides your trip takes you through some magnificent scenery following the river as it meanders down through the spectacular Wye Valley. The river passes under the well renowned view point of Symonds Yat Rock, which is also famous for its peregrine falcons, finishing back in time for lunch at the wonderful Ye Old Ferrie Inn.

After a cracking lunch we put our helmets on for this bit and we set off again down river and through Symonds Yat Rapids into one of the most picturesque parts of the Wye Valley the carboniferious gorge, passing Biblins Suspension Bridge and under Seven Sisters view point you make your way into Wales, through Monmnouth and finishing around 4pm at the lovely Boat Inn at Redbrook back in England, where you can have a well deserved drink at the famous Boat Inn before we pick you up and return you back to Symonds Yat.

Known as the Birthplace of British Tourism following on from the publication of William Gilpin’s “Observations of the River Wye”, which created the picturesque movement, you will experience at first hand some of the most stunning scenery and wildlife in the British Isles.

In the evening you have a range of excellent riverside and local pubs and restaurants serving excellent local food and drink, but if you were really keen on getting into town we can arrange a night out in either Monmouth, Ross on Wye or Hereford.

The following day we are off to the Gower and to Dinas Rock and the Sychryd Gorge for some fun Climbing, Gorge Scrambling and Caving. If you are unsure of what Gorge Walking or Scrambling is about then it involves donning a wetsuit and a helmet and spending a wonderful few hours with your group walking, scrambling, climbing, abseiling and leaping up and down through stunning river and stream locations through a beautiful Welsh Gorge.

Gorge walking is a great all year round activity and our instructors have years of experience and know the gorges inside and out and can make sure your day out is not only as much fun as possible but also safe.

Gorge Walking, or Gorge Scrambling as it is sometimes called, is a great team building activity and you can either have a half day or full day session or maybe have a really wild day out and combine climbing, caving or abseiling with gorge walking, the gorge location has some fantastic climbing, great abseils and wonderful caves to explore, we can even split your group if only some want to climb or abseil maybe the others can go caving, we can make a day to suit your needs and a day of adventure you will never forget. Meet us at the Gorge or we can transport you, bring some lunch and a group of friends for a great day out, one that you will never forget.

Gorge Walking

Gorge walking is about the most fun you can have in a wetsuit, we have stunning locations throughout England and Wales and different Gorges to suit diferent groups from the mild to the extreme. We always start out gently and work up to the larger challenges, in our sessions you don’t have to do anything you are not comfortable with but our instructors are fantastic at getting the best out of you and with their vast knowledge you can rely on their expertise. During the session we will be taking pictures and video and we can supply this to you after your visit, you are welcome to bring your own cameras etc but at your own risk. Gorge Walking is an all year round activity as we supply wetsuits to keep you warm and all other safety equipment, all you need is a swim suit and a pair of old trainers or similar (and a towel !).

So what are you waiting for contact us to book,  get your firends, family or group together and we can put together an adventure weekend just for you!
