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 leisurely pace is one of the real pleasures in life.
There are canoe hire companies all along the River Wye including in Ross-on-Wye itself. There is a canoe launch on Long Acre, just off Wye Street close to The Bandstand, or you can use the Hope & Anchor’s launch, run by Hereford Canoe Hire, which is located immediately in front of the pub on the Rope Walk.
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. Find out more by contacting one of the companies below who operate in and around Ross-on-Wye:
