The Wye Valley Walk

A perfect mix of hill and river walking.

The Wye Valley Walk is a 136-mile walk of startling contrasts from ravine gorge cloaked in woodland, through meadow and orchard, to rugged and remote uplands. Follow the Wye through the battle-scarred Anglo-Welsh borders to where it pours in rocky cascades from its mountain source.

Experiences in The Forest of Dean

Gorge Walking, Climbing, Canoeing and Team Challenge.
While you are staying at the Portland House why not try doing one of our outdoor adventures. All our activities are really exciting, great fun and especially good for team bonding. We can take you abseiling, climbing, canoeing, and gorge walking, or if you fancy something different you can go on a survival training and bushcraft session. If all this seems too much like hard work then we could run one of our Team Challenges. This takes place right where you are staying, it’s loads of fun and everybody can join in.
