Thumbs Up For The Wye

When we set out to walk all of the Wye rivers from source one of the worlds greatest explorers Ranulph fiennes was kind enough to lend his support. What did he say about exploring the Wye? He said: "I have travelled a lot over the years and been lucky to see some of the remotest and most beautiful of environments but there is still a thrill in exploring our own back country.  The River Wye is one of the UK’s most pristine and dramatic rivers. Exploring its ecology, its wider waters and its history is well worthwhile. I encourage anyone to support the Wye Explorer. It has my moral support and I recommend it as a highly commendable project."

We were overjoyed with the comment. It is for sure a pristine and dramatic river - worth exploring. Click below for adventure ideas.
