Family Raft Building and White Water Rafting

A great day out with the family, building your own raft in the morning and then spending the afternoon on the river, but don't worry we'll provide the raft for the rapids.

More Info...

Raft Build

We can offer a fantastic raft building session which incorporates not only the challenge of building a raft that floats and holds together, but also a journey from a country mansion on the banks of the river Dee taking out about 2 km downstream.

This is a fantastic opportunity to raft down a river, on a craft built by your own fair hands. There is no access on this stretch of the river to the general public and it's a SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) to boot.

White Water Rafting

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!

Amazing day had by all! Went white water rafting with the family and partners for my 30th, we had a few nervous ones in the group but they where made to feel safe and had the best time. Couldn't recommend this more, the instructors were friendly and where able to have a laugh our instructor PJ was the best :) . We loved jumping off the boat and floating down river at certain areas (this is optional not forced). The whole team at get wet are lovely we will definitely be back!
