Glasbury to Hereford
3 Day Camping Expedition
Embark on a day 1 of your canoeing adventure along the majestic River Wye. Starting in scenic Glasbury, you’ll navigate through the famous town of books, Hay-on-Wye. Enjoy a delightful lunch break before continuing your journey into the English countryside, concluding at Whitney-on-Wye. Rest and rejuvenate at the charming riverside pub The Boat Inn.
Day 2 begins in Whitney-on-Wye, immersing you deeper into enchanting Herefordshire countryside, surrounded by lush orchards. Paddle onward to the charming Bredwardine, a perfect summer spot with a tranquil swimming spot, and conclude your voyage in idyllic Preston-on-Wye at Byecross Farm Campsite.
On the third day of your adventure, prepare to conquer the 11-mile stretch leading you into the heart of historic Hereford city. It’s important to note that this particular section of the river offers no exit points until you reach the vibrant city itself. The pace of the river slows down, providing you with ample time to savour the picturesque surroundings. At the Rowing Club, our dedicated team will ensure a comfortable return to your starting point in Glasbury.
