Forest Adventure canoes

Embark on a memorable experience with Forest Adventure along the Wye Valley, absorbing the beauty of the Forest of Dean.

Forest Adventure invites thrill-seekers and nature enthusiasts to discover the scenic wonders of the Wye Valley through its exhilarating Canoe & Kayak experiences. Nestled amidst breath-taking landscapes, these guided trips promise a perfect blend of adventure, skill-building and natural beauty.

Forest Adventure paddle the most scenic stretches of the river, from placid water to turbulent rapids. Instructors provide briefings on kayak/canoe control and safety procedures. Half or full day guided trips are available, with optional lunches. Participants learn flat water skills, moving water techniques, and engage in fun and games. The program also offers training for progressive courses accredited by the British Canoe Union.

So what’s the difference between a kayak and a canoe?

  • Kayaks, single-seat boats with a deck, use double-bladed paddles.

  • Canoes, North American open boats for two to three people, involve kneeling or sitting inside and using a single-bladed paddle.

We all need time to remind ourselves of the adventure in the world around us".
