All our canoeing the River Wye trips include a safety brief and how to control the boats whether you are doing a half day, full day or an expedition. We also provide all the boats, paddles and safety equipment for our canoe trips.
A half day river trip takes approximately 3-4 hours and a full day trip takes around 6-8 hours including a stop for lunch. The timing depends on the flow of the river and the pace you paddle at – most people are comfortable paddling between 10 and 18 miles in a day.
