iMPORTANT: due to COVID-19 activities are running slightly differently this season:
The minibus shuttle is currently not able to run. This means you will need to organise your own transport to get back to the tipi site after your canoe trip. You may drop a vehicle off ahead of your activity slot, or book a taxi.
We are unable to run the full day canoe trip (Tipi - Monmouth), but we are still running our most popular 3/4 day trip (Tipi - Symonds Yat) which begins at 12pm.
We advise speaking with ourselves or Wye Adventures directly regarding activities.
CANOEING & Kayaking
No visit to the Wye Valley is complete without a trip down the Wye. Running through an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the River Wye is renowned for its unspoiled scenery & wildlife, including Atlantic salmon, otters & kingfishers. We offer a number of routes & itineraries to suit your needs & abilities. Full, 3/4 or 1/2 day and multi-day trips are available, as well as the option to go self-guided or have an instructor with you.
Stand-Up Paddle Boarding
An off-shoot of surfing that originated in Hawaii. Stand-up paddle boarders stand on their boards, using a paddle to propel themselves through the water. SUP has become an increasingly popular activity & now incorporates other activities such as yoga.
Don your wetsuit, buoyancy aid & helmet and spend a wonderful few hours with your guide & group walking, scrambling, climbing, abseiling & leaping into plunge pools in a magical location.
Climbing & Abseiling
The climbing & abseiling at Symonds Yat Rock is suitable for all levels including complete novices. It is a friendly venue set in stunning surroundings. All sessions are tailored to the party's desires & level of experience.
Bushcraft & Survival
This Bushcraft & Survival taster session is a great course for anyone who is new to bushcraft and wanting to find out what it's all about. You will learn about fire starting, camp building and basic knife skills. Surrounded by wildlife and a vast array of natural resources, this course will provide you with a good grounding in basic bushcraft & survival.
