Try out white water rafting during this experience on an inflatable six person raft down the River Tryweryn in Wales. Both head down the two action packed runs of the Upper Tryweryn's white water rapids. The rapids are graded level three to four 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 that will have you screaming with sheer excitement. This adrenaline fuelled activity is perfect for two people wanting to experience the thrill of white water rafting!
Daily from mid December to end of October, subject to water releases by the local river authority. Dates fill very quickly; book at least six weeks in advance.
Severe adverse weather conditions or local environmental issues can affect water releases and rafting - participants MUST call the venue two days prior to the experience to check weather conditions and the latest water release information.
