Good safety briefing and tips given. Two hours of gentle rowing on a calm river. More expensive than what I had expected but worth the fee for the experience. (The fee was lower than many other local providers of canoe hire).

If you enjoy the outdoors, fabulous views and the very best of British countryside then I strongly recommend that you go to Ross on Wye and book some climbing and kayaking at Wyedean Canoe Day Trips and Activty Centre! Our 20 strong group had an awesome day kayaking on the River Wye and climbing one of the rock faces. The... More

Visited Wyedean today as a family of 2 adults and a 14 and 12 year old for a half day canoe trip. Wasnt sure what to expect! We registered and collected our life jackets, paddles and barrel to keep our belongings in. After receiving safety talk and a paddling demo we were taken via mini bus to Kerne Bridge where... More

Visited for the second time this year and hired 2 Canadian canoes which the centre lashed together to make a "catamaran" style raft for us. We were a family of 2 teenagers, 2 adults and 2 large dogs! We did the 1/2 day trip which takes around 3-4 hours to complete and had a wonderful time. The staff were very... More

We booked a full day canoeing with Wyedean and enjoyed every minute of it. After our arrival in the morning, we were equipped with buoyancy aids, given a safety briefing and driven upstream to Ross-on-Wye. The rough timeline given by the instructors, as well as the map provided, estimated 6 hours to get back to Symonds Yat but the river... More

A spur of the moment thing having never done it before I was a little nervous but the staff were great and explained everything which but my mind at rest. Only went out for an hour but quickly got the hang of it. A very enjoyable experience

What a brilliant experience this was, 9 miles from Kerne Bridge to Symonds Yat. The whole thing was so well managed by the team at Wyedean, they are truly professional and although they are youngsters themselves show a creditable level of maturity in dealing with customers of all ages and experience levels. The '3 hour' trip we undertook gave the... More

We'd come to the Forest of Dean camping and had planned to try out canoeing. Thank goodness we decided on Wyedean Canoe Hire. The lady on reception knew our capabilities far better than we did fortunately. It was our first canoeing experience and she suggested an hour out in a canoe to get the feel of it. Well let me...

The staff helped us park, reviewed the use of a canoe to everyone, helped us get the canoe in the water. The route from Kerne was beautiful. Occasionally, the water was a little fast moving but that made it even more fun.
