Details

Step inside an inflatable six person raft on the mighty River Tryweryn for a white water rafting experience in Wales that will see you challenge the elements as you work the rapids and fly over the water. The guide kits everyone up and brings you all up to speed on white water rafting techniques and instruction to get you on your way. Raft the runs up and down the river (as many times as four goes depending on time), all the time growing in confidence, getting wetter and wetter! The River Tryweryn set in North Wales is graded three on the UK s white water grading system which starts at one (a few splashes) and goes up to six (too rough to offer commercially). So get ready for a white-knuckle ride to guarantee screams of sheer excitement.
