9 mile paddle from Kearne bridge, picturesque nature. Good briefing from the staff, not a difficult trip even with the shallow 'rapids'

We are just back from a brilliant day on the River Wye where we spent the morning canoeing and the afternoon orienteering with Wye Canoes. There were five of us and we ranged in age from 13 to 70 odd! The guides that accompanied us on the river were very helpful and managed to get us going in the right... More

We went on the 30th June, 2014 on my 21st birthday and it was just the most lovely day from start to finish! The man who gave us the introduction talk (sorry I can't remember your name!) was really friendly and funny and obviously knew his stuff! You feel prepared enough to get going but not so overwhelmed with red... More

We did a canoe/orienteering day - great fun - two hours on the Wye canoeing, then lunch and orienteering in the afternoon. Well organised and fun for all. Staff are great and friendly, but also there to help if you get into trouble - safety is a priority.

As two beginner canoeists we had a great day on the river, feeling safe in good canoes and with plenty of guides and support should we have needed it. Orienteering was fun and all instructions clearly laid out and easy to follow. All the crew were friendly and helpful. Definitely recommended .

Stuart organised a fantastic weekend for us (party of 12). Having never been there, he suggested a full itinerary, with overnight stops, eating recommendations and evening entertainment. When we had all arrived (extra points for putting us with a bit of a rabble!), we were taken to the drop off point, and paddled down to Ross, where we moored as... More

We came to Wye Canoes as my Mum had bought a Groupon for a guided canoe session and orienteering. I'll point out here that I'm by no means someone who regularly exercises and I coped fine with the days' activities. I did sleep pretty well though! We spent the morning canoeing down the river Wye and despite us not ever... More

We didn't have the greatest weather but despite that it was a really great day. We are complete novices but the canoes felt very safe and we were well looked after. The river and surroundings were quite beautiful and Stuart and his crew were very friendly. The orienteering in the afternoon rounded off a very satisfying experience.

I had a fantastic day canoeing on the River Wye in the morning and then orienteering in the afternoon. This day is not for the un-fit which should be quite obvious as in order to paddle and then walk amongst forestry uphill and downhill - it requires a certain level of health, fitness and motivation. The canoeing is beautiful along... More
