The National White Water Centre has over 25 years of experience in providing white water rafting at the best summer white water facility in the UK. The Tryweryn River is a steep and rocky mountain river with fast flowing rapids that carry you down the course on an exhilarating and adrenalin fuelled trip. And, because the Tryweryn is a dam controlled river we very often have water when all other rivers are dry!
We have a variety of sessions available ranging from fun family trips along the lower river to fast flowing group sessions on the upper river.
Full Session Groups/ Individuals: In the two hours you will get 4 exhilarating and adrenaline fuelled runs down the grade 3/4 mountain river.
Taster Session: Not quite sure what to expect? Experience the thrill of white water rafting with 2 runs down in our 14 foot inflatable rafts, lasting just over an hour.
The Tryweryn Safari: A family friendly session suitable for children aged 10 years old or over. Tackle rapids, surf waves and bounce off boulders while enjoying breathtaking wild river scenary.
The Tryweryn Special- Upper/Lower River Combo: Our longest raft run; starting at The Chipper you’ll paddle small manoeuvrable rafts through the grade 3/4 rapids of the classic National White Water Centre run and then carry on for another 6km down the fantastic lower Tryweryn all the way to Bala.
Orcas: Two-man inflatable rafts that provide the ultimate thrill for people who are looking for a cross between white water rafting and canoeing. An opportunity to familiarise yourself with the rocky course in our guided 14 foot inflatable rafts before braving the rapids on your own in the Orcas!
For those wanting a slightly different white water experience, you can leave the raft behind and go canyoning, where you will slide, swim and scramble down the stunning gorge and be met by a bus to bring you back to the centre.
Fancy a go at kayaking? Now you can have a go in one of our tandem kayaks, this will get you closer to the crashing waves with you paddling yourself down our vigorous white water course, don't worry, you have a guide in the back!
If you don't fancy the adventure of the river, don't worry: there are extensive riverside trails around the centre and picnic areas dotted around the site which give you the opportunity to take in the splendour of the surroundings. We are situated in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, and the breathtaking scenery of the area offers a fantastic retreat, not only for the water sports enthusiast, but for everyone.
