Our experienced canoeing instructors will teach you the basic art of canoeing through the Herefordshire River Wye before you have even dipped a toe in the water.

We'll supply you with a buoyancy aid, canoe and paddle. Our canoes are based on the type first used by the North American Indians (you'll be pleased to know) that since then they have been modified to become a great deal lighter and more stable! These Canadian canoes are open-topped and will seat two or three people.

The activity consists of a spectacular five mile expedition along the beautiful River Wye. Sit back and enjoy the Herefordshire scenery as you cruise through the easy flowing stretches. Battle to stay afloat as you dodge your way around the rocks, then just close your eyes and holler when it gets to the faster parts! Canoeing is a great team sport and great fun.  You don’t have to be a strong swimmer to take part in this activity.

For your own safety buoyancy aids must be worn and qualified canoeing instructors will accompany you at all times.

  • Two man Canadian canoes

“Nick's Stag Weekend - 10 out of 10”

From the moment I made an initial enquiry until saying our goodbyes at the end of the weekend, the entire Mountain Mayhem experience was fantastic! Finding a place that caters for all ages and abilities can be hard yet this place has it all, they tailored the whole weekend to suit us at a very reasonable price. We arrived on the Friday and were greeted with a fresh buffet lunch before we set off for our canoeing adventure on the river Wye, supported by a great instructor the only thing that hindered our voyage was the fits of laughter watching the stag and best man recover their canoe from the bank, a tree or an upside down position etc. At the end of a 5 mile journey we were met and delivered back to our cars before setting off for a well deserved pint at the bunk house accommodation.


"Adventure Weekend"

great weekend of fun and adventure, really well organised by the Mountain Mayhem team. Organisation from the first inquiry right through to the finish was excellent, with good advice on the best activities to suit the group. Vicki and Fred kept the action moving and made each of the events we did fun and competitive whilst ensuring everything was done in a safe, but relaxed way. Lunch on both days also hit the spot. Great value for money, a definite recommend for any groups seeking something exciting and a little different for the weekend.
