White Water Rafting is an exhilarating activity to undertake and will definitely create great memories of family days out. During the course of your white water rafting session you will get to travel down a 4mile stretch of river ranging in grade from 2 - 4. The biggest drop on the section graded at class 4 is the last drop on the session. You will be guided down the river by a fully qualified white water raft guide and they will make sure that your session is tailored to the needs of your family. There are great places to play on your way down the river and plenty of fun for kids and adults alike. Our guides will make sure you know where you can push the kids in too if you really want to!
Putting in at the top of the river leaves a rafting journey of 4 miles in front of you. It's a steep, rocky course and the river is classed as a grade 2/4. (This is a Worldwide accepted rating that grades the technical difficulty of rapids on a river. Grade 1 is gentle flowing water, and grade 6 is considered commercially un-runnable).
You will put onto the river after a full safety brief with your guides.
The river gradually builds through rapids like "Long left" and "Bouncing Rock" on it's way towards Bala.
You'll pay a visit to "Dump Truck Eddy" and your trip will culminate with a descent of "Bala Mill Falls" the biggest drop on the entire river!

A fabulous time was had by all. It was a fabulous experience and was led by really lovely instructors. I would recommend that you participate in this activity and from my personal experience I would say you will enjoy the rafting. The activity is really well run and is extremely fun. The health and safety element of this activity is really well done and covers all your worries. You are also given a strong briefing and the do and dont's making the experience even better. I would recommend that you give this a go as it is one of the best activities I've ever done. The staff are amazing and the facilities are fabulous. Josh.P Age 12yrs
