Wye Valley Canoes

Wye Valley Canoes 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, mountain bikes 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).

Wye Valley Canoes offer:

  • Canoes
  • Camping
  • Groups
  • Bikes
  • Beds
  • Bunkhouse
  • River Cafe


Visit Hay On Wye a pretty town set in magnificent countryside on the east bank of the River Wye. Hay is at the northernmost point of the Brecon Beacons National Park and is bounded by the Black Mountains to the west and south.

It is an international destination for bibliophiles, with over twenty fascinating bookshops to browse, many selling specialist and collectable books. There are also many boutique shops and what must be one of the most luxurious small cinemas in the country!

Walking in Hay On Wye is the easiest way to enjoy outdoor activities, get closer to nature and leave behind the hustle and bustle of modern everyday life.

Visit Herefordshire and explore a county of rolling, green countryside interrupted by villages steeped in history and interest. There’s plenty to see and do but there’s no escaping the sense of peace and fresh air.
