Half day canoe hire

Chester Canoe hire

Canoe hire on the Llangollen Canal is an incredible experience that offers spectacular views of the Welsh countryside and a chance to traverse one of the most impressive engineering feats of the 19th century: the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. Hiring a canoe is the best way to take the reigns of adventure and explore The Llangollen canal for yourself.

What to Expect

Half day Canoe Hire on the Llangollen canal takes place from the village of Froncysyllte and allows you 3 hours to paddle along the picturesque Llangollen Canal traveling through the Dee Valley 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!

each canoe seats 3 people so this self guided trip can be as little as £18.33pp
