Symonds Yat

Symonds Yat
Location Type: River

Great for: Stunning gorges, short or longer multi-day trips, all levels.

Practically anywhere on the river Wye from Hay-On-Wye down to Tintern offers great SUPing opportunities, especially for those wanting to do longer or multiple day trips. The river’s gentle meander and absence of major obstacles like weirs also make it a great place to develop or improve your self-taught skills. If you launch your SUP at Kerne Bridge, the next few miles’ majestic paddling through the stunning forested gorge to the Saracens Head pub at Symonds Yat are some of the most spectacularly beautiful in the UK. Why not make a whole day of it? Those with stamina could start 13 miles upstream in Ross-on Wye instead, or the more experienced paddler might want to test themselves on the grade 2 rapids just down river from the pub. Wherever you dip your paddle, a day on the Wye is hard to top.
