Our Routes

Canoe and Kayak routes near Hay on Wye

For a morning or afternoon out paddling we recommend: Hay-on-Wye to Whitney on Wye (5.5 miles, 2 hours) or Glasbury to Hay-on-Wye (5.5 miles, 2 hours)

Both of these routes take in some of the best scenery in the upper Wye Valley.

For full day paddling we recommend: Glasbury to Whitney-on-Wye (stopping at Hay on Wye for lunch). (11 miles, 4-5 hours)

If you decide to paddle on from Glasbury downstream past Hay-on-Wye, the second section of river between Hay-on-Wye and Whitney-on-Wye is just as stunning. On arriving into Whitney-on-Wye, you’ll pass under the Toll Bridge just half a mile from the finish point at The Boat Inn pub, where the Pound B&B / Bunkhouse & Campsite is based.

For more adventurous paddlers we recommend: Glasbury to Preston-on-Wye however this requires an earlier start!
