Adventure Activities

Challenge Yourself!

In the Forest of Dean there are so many opportunities to experience adventure. Here are just some!

Canoeing, Rafting, Climbing, Caving & More!

Take in the beautiful River Wye and Symonds Yat from a canoe or from the rock face! A great way to see the countryside. For canoeing – paddle hard upstream and the float back! Have a beer at The Saracen’s Head or Royal Lodge after your exertions! For the more adventurous/fit, you can get dropped off further upstream at Kerne Bridge or Ross-on-Wye and paddle back to Symonds Yat.
