The Wye Valley Source to Sea Itinerary

Day 1Welcome to the River Wye and Elan Valleys

Arriving at Gloucester, at the railway station, we’ll pick you up and transport you all the way up to the top of the Wye Valley, taking a last minute detour to the Elan Valley – a hidden gem if ever there was one! We check in to our accommodation and jump on the bikes for an introductory ride through this wonderful valley in the afternoon. There may even be time for a kayak in the late afternoon. We then get to know each other over dinner and the promise of many adventures ahead!

Day 2Source the Source of the Wye Valley

We transfer far up into the Welsh Mountains and hunt for the source of the Wye – which is only a mile from the source of the River Severn. It’s a bit of a hike and there is no compulsion to go all the way to the source itself. We then jump on the bikes and start down the Wye river – remember it’s downhill all the way – with a few minor hills to negotiate. We stay again in the Elan Valley with dinner in one of the wonderful local pubs.

Day 3The Real Wye in all its Glory

From the Elan Valley we bike again down the Wye Valley, taking in some of the wonderful sites on route and finish the day by SUP’ing down the river to our accommodation in the village of Glasbury. We head into Hay on Wye in the evening for dinner in one of the renowned pubs in the centre of this famous literary town.

Day 4On the river - Canoe / Kayak / SUP - The choice is yours!

We head, down the river from Glasbury, past Hay on Wye for our first full day on the river. There is a choice of craft, from SUP / Canoe or Kayak and we travel for as long as guests like – which will slightly depend on the flow and guest appetite for speed. We picnic on the banks of the river for lunch and return to Glasbury in the evening for a night on your own.

Day 5Bike the Heart of the Wye - Hereford to Ross

The start point of the day will depend on how far we travel the day before! It’s a day for the bike and we travel towards Hereford, where we stop for lunch (and have a look at the Cathedral) before heading down alongside the river again to Ross on Wye and the end of the day’s ride. If anybody wants to head out on the river then that’s just fine!

Day 6On the water - Symonds Yat, Goodrich Castle and Monmouth

 An iconic day on the river with up to 20 miles to cover (but you really don’t have to do it all!). We pass the iconic Symonds Yat – keep an eye out for the peregrine falcons which patrol its cliffs – and past the historic Goodrich Castle before finishing the day in the wonderful Welsh border town of Monmouth. We transfer back to Ross on Wye, so we don’t need to change accommodation.

Day 7The Last Leg to Chepstow + the Wye Tamed!

After breakfast we transfer to Monmouth for our celebratory ride to Chepstow and the end of our journey. It’s 16 miles, with a few little hills thrown in to keep us honest! At Chepstow we celebrate our achievement and transport port guests back to their cars or the railway station for your on-going travel.
