Your morning begins at St Pierre Park hotel & country club with a welcome and briefing from your host.  Firstly we will

introduce you to a number of beautiful birds of prey which you will be able to fly in the woodland around the hotel.  We’ll

then set off to a little-known viewpoint of the Wye Valley which has inspired artists, poets and even Presidents. Another

short drive will take us to a private woodland to learn some of the most important and essential of wilderness skills with Alan.

The afternoon will be spent around the famous Symonds Yat Rock, with lunch at the historic Olde Ferrie Inn. You will

be briefed on how to handle a Canadian canoe and set-off  to paddle through a remarkable natural gorge.  The River Wye

is unique in that it is possible for complete novices to experience the serenity of riding a canoe on a river.  We’ll meet you

beyond the rapids and walk you back through the forest explaining the various plants, trees and flowers found there.

We transport you back across the river in a hand-drawn ferry and return you to the comfort of St Pierre Park where you will be

free to use the many facilities. Relax with drinks in the comfort of the lounge followed by dinner in a choice of restaurants.

Before retiring to your room, you may want to wander the grounds and see the stars, or linger  a while in the medieval church.

The next day you might want to visit the spa, conduct some business or play a round of golf.   Or perhaps, you might just

want to reflect on a day of exceptional experiences.
