Expert instruction on hand
Not for the tame hearted - Prepare to be soaked and for the time of your life
Rediscover your sense of adventure (and what it s like to be soaked to the skin!) as you join up to five others on a raft for some great fun white water rafting in Northampton, England on a man-made course. Fed by electric pumps so water levels are consistently high throughout the year the man made white water rafting course is floodlit for exciting evening sessions. The UK's white water rafting course grades Northampton course 2 - 3, the white water rafting grading system starts at one for a relaxed experience (a few splashes) up to six which is a stomach churning ride that is far too extreme to offer commercially. Northampton's rafting course is stimulating, exciting and breathtaking, don't take our word for it - experience this for yourself.
Selected dates from March to October. Dates are more scarce outside summer months. Weekend dates fill quickly - book six to eight weeks in advance.
