The Wye Valley Canoe Centre sits on the banks of the River Wye four miles west of Hay-on-Wye. We are located on the bridge at Glasbury and next to our café The River Café.
We have a fleet of canoes, kayaks, double kayaks and accommodation to sleep from 1 to 26! So come for breakfast, have a day on the river and return to great food and a comfy bed.
You can paddle for a few hours or a few days. You start with us at the Wye Valley Canoe Centre in Glasbury and paddle downstream. When you reach your destination you telephone us and we collect you and your canoes with a minibus and trailer. It is a beautiful stretch of river, and ideal to spend time with friends or family enjoying the peace and quiet of a really unspoilt stretch of water.
Half a day will take you to Hay. For the more intrepid a full day will take you a couple of hours further on to either the Toll Bridge or The Boat Inn. If you need a complete break then try camping or B&B'ing it down the Wye for a few days and reach Hereford, Ross or Monmouth or a few place in between with a bit of canvas or the phone number of a B&B with a four poster (you can tell which I would prefer).
