Guided Canoeing on the River Wye, Mid-Wales. 

Enjoy a leisurely paddle in a canoe or kayak with one of our experience river guides. Our Guided Canoeing sessions take place on the River Wye, near Brecon, and are a great way to introduce you to the sport whilst having a fun day out. For the session our British Canoeing qualified guides will equip you with a buoyancy aid and paddle and give a brief safety talk in preparation for your canoe experience. Once on the water your guide will teach you the basic skills to paddling from A to B, and once you have mastered these they will then lead you down the River Wye where your canoe experience will begin. Along the way they will teach you a few techniques, general river terms, navigation as well safely guiding you downstream. They will also throw in a couple of games for those up for the challenge!

Our guided canoe trips are not just a standard guided trip but a fun, interactive and enjoyable experience for both kids and adults, and are great value for money!

Our guided trips are generally a half day (2-3 hours), available either at 9:15am or 1:15pm.

*Please be aware that if river conditions are deemed unsuitable by Black Mountain Activities Ltd on the day of your activity, all guided canoe trips will take place on the Brecon & Monmouthshire Canal.*
