Expeditions

What sets a canoeing expedition apart is that it purifies you more rapidly and inescapably than any other. Pierre Trudeau

Canoe/Camping Expedition - River Wye - 2 or 5 Days

The River Wye offers a true remote wilderness for canoe expeditions. Take in the wonders of journeying in an open boat enjoying the wildlife, areas of outstanding natural beauty and historic landmarks. These carefully crafted adventure holidays offer a unique experience!

The extensive knowledge of our instructors will help you identify and enjoy wildlife such as nesting Sand Martins, Oyster Catchers, Heron and King Fishers. The river is also home to Atlantic Salmon and fresh water Crayfish. As you journey downstream the banks are dense with foliage and a huge variety of trees, each turn in the river providing a different landscape.  Take in the glorious site of grazing animals and hopefully some deer and wild boar. If you’re lucky, on an early morning paddle, you may even catch sight of an Otter.
