From its source on the slopes of Plynlimon in Mid Wales to Chepstow where it enters the Severn Estuary, the River Wye flows through some of the most attractive and varied countryside in Britain. During its journey the Wye descends 680mtrs and at approximately 244 km long it is one of Britain's major rivers. The Wye is largely unpolluted and is therefore considered one of the best rivers for salmon fishing in the United Kingdom, outside of Scotland. It is also a popular river with canoeists due to the relatively slow flowing water, making it good for beginners and the rapids at Symonds Yat which are slightly more challenging. Walkers can enjoy the Wye Valley Walk which follows the route of the River Wye from Hay-on-Wye to Chepstow along a series of well maintained way-marked paths.
