Where can I go white water rafting in Wales?

Snowdonia offers the perfect white water rapids for an action-packed day out, for people of all levels and experiences.

White water rafting is quite simple: all you need is friends, a raft and a river. In the shadow of the highest mountain in Wales, whether you’re a veteran of the rapids or you’re a newcomer, there’s a water-bound adventure for everyone all under the guidance of an expert rafter. For the uninitiated, try the rafting taster session in a one-hour run down the rapids. Can’t get enough? Take the full session, a thrilling two-hour venture running 4 times through the one-mile section. If you’re with the kids, then the rafting safari session is the perfect family-friendly adventure, taking you on a four-mile adventure through a beautiful valley.
