The pure adrenaline rush of white water rafting in Scotland, Wales or England
A two-hour session of breathtaking twists, turns and drops in a six to eight person raft
Depending on venue, run a mighty natural river or a thrilling, purpose-built course
Expert instruction included. Bring your sense of adventure - and a willingness to get wet
For unique presents that will live long in the memory, let them rediscover their sense of adventure (and what it's like to be soaked to the skin!) with this white water rafting experience in an inflatable six to eight person raft. Start by being kitted out with all the equipment (note: this is not an experience for the style-conscious!), before a full safety briefing and instruction in rafting techniques. Then an experienced guide takes everyone onto the water for a series of runs down the breathtaking twists, turns and drops of the white water course. Raft either on a mighty natural river or a thrilling purpose-built course - either way; it's an adrenaline-fuelled, exhilarating and unforgettable experience.
Rafting starts in early spring and runs throughout the summer and on into late autumn. In Scotland the main rafting seasons are spring and autumn when the white water is at its peak, in Wales selected Sundays Feb to October. Weekend dates fill quickly - book six to eight weeks in advance.
Minimum age varies from 10 to 14. A weight limit may apply depending on venue. Most venues require your ability to swim and all venues state you must be confident in water. Venues may test your fitness. Please advise us in advance of any disabilities.
Rafting will go ahead in most conditions but may be affected by extreme weather conditions or flooding if the rivers are too swollen.
