Canoes, kayaks, hire, guiding and coaching.

Covid-19 Update


We regret that we will not be hiring canoes or kayaks before the end of the school holiday period.  We will update the situation early in September.

Paddling a canoe or kayak is a peaceful and sustainable way to enjoy a day on the water with a waterside picnic, watch wildlife, or spend a holiday 'off the beaten track' moving between campsites or B&B's.  And it's FUN!

Backwaters hires canoes, kayaks and camping equipment on a number of waterways in Wales, the Borderland and beyond; including Camlas Mynwy ac Aberhonddu - Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal,  Afon Gŵy - River Wye

and Afon Hafren - River Severn.  We also offer guiding, coaching for beginners and improvers, and a 'Water Awareness Day' for those who have their own boat, or are thinking of hiring, and would like to gain some basic skills and experience before venturing out alone.
