Full White Water Rafting Session in Wales
Step inside an inflatable six-person raft on the mighty River Tryweryn for a white water rafting experience in Wales that is a challenge against the elements. Work the rapids and fly over the water. The helpful guide will kit everyone out and bring everyone up to speed on white water rafting techniques and instruction. Raft the runs up and down the river (as many times as four depending on time), all the while 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.
