Canoe HIRE Gift Vouchers

Welcome to our Canoe hire gift vouchers page. Here you can explore what voucher experiences we offer and how it all works.


Canoeing on the River Wye is suitable for all levels of ability. Most of our customers have either never canoed before or have only done it a handful of times. Some of our customers will return 3 or 4 times a year building up their confidence and ability and taking on longer and more difficult sections of the Wye. The River Wye is ideal for learning how to Canoe and Kayak as it is relatively narrow and during the summer reasonably shallow in most places.

Some of our shorter Canoe Hire Trips include the Half Day and the Three Quarter Day. The half day hire is about 3 hours of gentle downstream paddling and the three quarter day option is the same distance but you get an extra hour or so to enjoy a picnic lunch en route. These options are ideal for a mini adventure for everyone to enjoy.

How it works

Firstly choose which trip you would like to give someone as a gift. Information on each trip can be found by going to our trips page where you will find a more detailed description of the route and what to expect. Below are a few of the options available and variations of each trip can be found by clicking on them.

Once you have purchased the voucher online we will then send you the voucher via email. You can then print it off on some nice paper, ready to be presented to the recipient. Once you have presented the voucher to the recipient all they have to do is get in contact with us. We will get them booked in on a date of their choice (subject to availability). We then send them confirmation of their booking via email and further joining instructions like the preparation guidelines, route maps and safety information.
