Do you need a licence?
Yes! The best way to get a licence is to become a member of British Canoeing or Canoe Wales. Not only will you get access to our network of inland waterways, you'll get a host of other benefits too.
Alternatively you can buy a short term visitor licence from local waterway offices or online from our boat licensing pages.
Getting on the water
Of course, if you’ve done your homework and are ready to set off, or an experienced paddler already, you might be interested to know where you can launch from. For a map of slipways please visit http://www.boatlaunch.co.uk/.
Canoeing in Wales
Glandŵr Cymru – the Canal & River Trust in Wales - has teamed up with Canoe Wales who have developed our Burgedin Lock Cottages on the banks of the Montgomery Canal to offer people all they need to get on the water whether they are looking for a quick splash, a full day of adventure, a coached session or something bespoke.
