Celebrate National Go Canoeing Week with Want to Canoe?

160x600_WideSkyScraper.jpgSo this half-term week in Hay on Wye, right next to WANT TO CANOE? HQ it is the world famous Hay Literature Festival as well as the‘How The Light Gets In Festival’. . . you can join us on the river to escape the festival buzz for a while and enjoy some peace and tranquility! It also happens to be NATIONAL GO CANOEING WEEK so you can #JoinTheJourney with us and clock up some official miles on the River Wye!

Canoeing with us is a great way to have some fun in the outdoors, get a gentle work-out, oxidise and blast those bleary eyes from last night at the festival or simply just sit back and enjoy the breath-taking wildlife and scenery . . .

Book our hire-canoes and head off on your own or even better join one of our guided adventures. . . a bespoke set of tours for groups/families/staff teams etc covering a glorious stretch of the Mid-Wye from Glasbury on Wye, through Hay on Wye to Whitney on Wye. Having a guide means being able to learn basic canoe-skills or brush up on existing skills and techniques, play games and make the most out of the new skills you’ve been practicing, also take in the scenery and wildlife more easily.

Set yourself a challenge. . . Our Challenge Paddle provides you with the opportunity to complete a six mile route in a handpicked, scenic location, in your own time and at your own pace.

Everyone who takes part in one of our Challenge Paddles will receive a Go Canoeing medal for their efforts and the mileage completed can be registered with us to help us reach our overall target! You’ll also be entered into our prize draw to be in with a chance of winning some awesome prizes. . . #JoinTheJourney

The Wye is by far one of the most beautiful rivers in the British Isles and one of the few you can navigate by canoe, without restriction, for well over 100 miles. want to canoe offer you the chance to embark on a relaxing river adventure from two different start-points, all with their own unique sights, sounds and smells. Along your journey, you can expect to see a number of spectacular and fascinating characters in their natural habitats, including kingfishers, herons, cormorants, dragonflies, ducks, swans and otters
all from the prime viewpoint of your canoe. #FindYourEpic

Pre-booking is advised but not essential and we have an enormous fleet of versatile Old Town Canadian Canoes available to hire including two-man, three-man and family options. We supply all the kit you need as well as the all-important return transport at the end of your challenge. There’s also a complimentary cup of tea or coffee on arrival while you are completing paperwork and planning your route with the team.

You will receive a thorough safety-briefing and practice paddle before you head off downstream so be assured you are in very safe hands. Challenge Guided Tours are also available!
