A perfect trip for getting out there and paddling with the whole family or as an individual. The trip is a relaxed, flat water trip, suitable for all skill levels and craft types in the beautiful Wye Valley.  The river itself is perfect for beginners, being that there’s many opportunities to try out some of the skills that you may have been practising at the lido. Plus the scenery throughout the two days is awesome.There are numerous options for paddling, including the infamous Symonds Yat rapids. The trip offers opportunity to travel a good distance each day subject to the group if you are still relatively new to Paddlesports it is worth considering use of a touring kayak or doubling up in an open canoe.
