Canoeing

Fun on the river is one of the most enjoyable aspects of a holiday in Ross-on-Wye or of staying for a short break or long weekend. Meandering down the river by canoe, on your own or with a group, and watching the world drift by at a pace our forefathers would have recognised, with time to really see the river and the countryside around it, is one of the real pleasures in life.

There are canoe hire companies all along the river, including one in Ross-on-Wye itself and you can find the canoe launch on Long Acre, just off Wye Street, close to The Bandstand.

There is however much more to canoe hire than meets the eye. For the more adventurous, some of these companies offer mountain and trail bike hire in combination with canoeing or paddling and some even offer bushcraft and ‘back to nature’ experiences.
