Outdoor Pursuits in Herefordshire

Outdoor Pursuits in Herefordshire – It doesn’t matter what age you are or what ability, Herefordshire is the perfect county to indulge your passion for the great outdoors.

Let’s start with the River Wye; famous for its salmon and competitive and leisure fishing, you’ll find a great choice of fishing lakes too with waterside accommodation so you need never leave your post.

Then of course there’s the canoeing; from the popular spots at Hay on Wye  in north to Symonds Yat in the south, drift along and stop en-route on a family day, or join a regatta rowing event right in the City for the more competitive.

While Herefordshire has its walking festivals, it really is a year-round destination to those who love to stride out on our incredible hills and countryside. From the Malverns to the Black Mountains, The Brecons to Hay Bluff, we’re surrounded by a walkers paradise.

Then there’s every activity in between to be enjoyed here is active Herefordshire; hack through the countryside on horseback, try quadbiking, archery, tree trekking, there’s all sorts for all people. Or just bring your bike and stay on or off road.

Herefordshire is the county that never stops playing.
