What is River Tubing?

Originating from white water rafting, a much more high adrenaline sport which requires you to traverse fast flowing rivers, river tubing is more relaxed – it’s a fun- low-effort sport, usually taking place on rivers where the current is strong enough to carry you along without the risk of being flipped over or losing control.

Don’t worry if you’re travelling, they also provide accommodation at Cragwood Guesthouse, a lovely bed & breakfast nearby. All rooms come equipped with free wi-fi, luxury beds and coffee making facilities to relax after your exciting day out.

  • Sessions of 2 hrs 30 minus – £30 per person (min of 2 participants required)
  • Suitable for those aged 7 years and older, and under 18 stone.
  • Wetsuit and helmet provided on the day
  • Activity difficulty is easy/moderate
