White water rafting at the National White Water Centre means taking on the challenging Afon Tryweryn; you and your crew will be swept through crashing waves and boulder strewn rapids on this fast flowing Welsh mountain river.  Rafting sessions range from a fast paced and exhilarating ride on the grade 3-4* Upper Tryweryn to a relaxing river journey on the grade 2-3 Lower Tryweryn. Or if you fancy the best of both worlds...the whole 7km from Llyn Celyn Reservoir to Bala on our longest raft run!  For further information about any rafting session click on the session name on the menu on the left hand side of this page or see quick raft session guide below.  

Before running the rapids you will be kitted out in safety equipment and wetsuits.  Your raft guide will brief on rafting techniques and have you practising safety drills in preparation for your rafting adventure!

*White water is graded from 1 to 6. Grade 1 is gentle flowing water, Grade 6 is un-runnable!

What do I need to Bring?

You will need to bring a swimsuit, shorts or something to wear underneath the wetsuit which you don’t mind getting wet and a towel for the showers. Everything else you’ll need will be provided or available to hire at the centre. Wetsuits are compulsory for rafting at the centre and can either be hired from reception on the day or when you book; if you have your own bring it along, you are welcome to use it as long as it is long legged and suitable for the activity. There are coin return lockers in the changing rooms, so bring some change.
