Canoe and Camping On The River Wye


Stag Do Ideas Alert – Why not spend your stag do canoeing and camping down the River Wye?

It doesn’t have to be on the River Wye, however over the last couple of years the facilities on this beautiful river have increased considerably.

I have actually been on three camping and canoeing trips down the River Wye and each one has been loads of fun, you will never get bored of the breathtaking scenery and the sense of freedom, isolation and tranquility, you get when floating down river.

The best way to do it and the most enjoyable way is to Lord it, have a single base and have pre arranged transport, we cater for this type of canoeing and camping stag do on our website.

You set up camp on the banks of the River Wye next door to a pub, well you are on a stag do. The facilities include great pub food, showers, toilet facilities and a place to land your vessels.

The first day you get picked up and transported 10.5 miles up river, you then canoe down to your campsite, which can take between 3 to 6 hours depending on how fast you paddle, most stag groups prefer to take their time, relax and have a laugh.

Once you have landed at your campsite, shower (optional) and get yourself into the pub for a good hearty meal with lashings of local ales, beers, and ciders. There is also a pool table, outside seating areas and the best views of the river.

On our last canoeing venture we sat up until the early hours drinking and laughing at the experiences of the day which mainly involved wigging the canoeists' who capsized.

The next day it’s time to set off from the pub down river, another day of freedom, beautiful scenery and a few rapids to navigate.

You then get picked up from an agreed destination and taken back to your campsite. 

This is an incredible stag do for groups looking to get away from it all enjoying something you wouldn't normally do.

Longer and short options are available and if camping isn't for you there is plenty of places to stay including, Hay on Wye, Glasbury or the bright lights of Hereford.
