Anyone that has travelled by water will know it is something special. Floating along in a canoe, essentially sitting on the water, allows for a completely different view than walking, running, or riding a bike. When travelling alongside a river, we almost always look down upon it, not in a negative way, but the angle of us being above the water and river valley means we need to look downwards onto it. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this and rivers are wonderful meandering routes through the landscape. The special thing about water travel is we are looking out from the river into the landscape.

The river Wye meanders through stunning rolling hills with wooded sides. You get peaks at houses with large windows or glass sides allow the occupants to maximise the view on their doorstep. We were lucky enough to see lots of wildlife, such as Buzzards, swans (lots!), ducks, heron, fish, kingfisher and numerous other birds. We also saw a few other canoeists and a small handful of fishermen. Other than that we had a peaceful and enjoyable paddle. There are also various stops on route with access to pubs, so a great way to have a break and re-fill with a light lunch.
We booked vwith Monmouth Canoe and look forward to using them again.
