Half day canoe hire

Canoe Hire new pic


Canoe hire on the Llangollen Canal is an incredible experience that offers spectacular views of the Welsh countryside and a chance to traverse several of the most impressive engineering feats including the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.

Hiring a canoe is simply the best way to take the reins of adventure and explore the length Llangollen canal for yourself at your own pace.

What to Expect

Our half day Canoe Hire on the Llangollen canal takes place from the Froncysyllte and allows you 3  hours to explore the picturesque Llangollen Canal traveling through the Dee Valley. You will paddle through rolling hills, tranquil woodland, all set against the stunning backdrop of the Clwydian Range, however the real highlight of the trip is undoubtedly the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. This incredible structure spans the River Dee valley and is counted as one of the seven wonders of Wales it is over 300m long and almost 40 meters high.



£55 per boat
each canoe seats 2/3 people
