Canoeing and Gorge Walking / Scrambling

A fantastic All Year Round Activity, experience the stunning Wye Valley and its unique scenery and wildlife along the river and in the magical Forest of Dean 12 months of the year. In summer often the river is shrouded in mist first thing in the morning as we launch, and as the mist clears the stunning scenery emerges and the sun breaks through. In autumn the forest colours are simply an amazing array of golds and reds, wildlife calls as you paddle your way through the gorge and onto Symonds Yat for lunch. In winter we wrap you up nice and warm and sometimes raft your canoes to avoid any chance of capsizing, you just drift down the river taking in the wildlife and fantastic surroundings. You are accompanied by highly experienced guides, to teach you how to paddle, help identify wildlife, answer questions about the environment, and of course deal with any safety issues and make sure you have a great day out!

Gorge Walking or Scrambling

Your Wye Valley Canoe & Gorge Walking Adventure starts with you meeting us in Symonds Yat West followed by introductions and getting you kitted out for the day with buoyancy aids, dry bags or barrels for whatever you wish to take with you and then a paddle and safety briefing before we are off to Kerne Bridge just below Goodrich Castle to begin the first part of the day Canoeing.

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 off the great mornings paddle at Symonds Yat.

We will have lunch on the trip down to the Gorge, you can relax in the warm minibus and enjoy a packed lunch (which we can provide at £5 pp) it’s not long before we reach the stunning gorge and it’s time to get into the wetsuits and get wet. We will gently introduce you to the gorge water before we head off up climbing, crawling and swimming our way further and further until we reach one of the most popular attractions, the leaps into deep plunge pools, you don’t have to do it if your not happy, but it’s great fun and really safe. We will be taking photos and HD video during your session that you can have access to afterwards so you are assured of a great day out!
