Rafting trip

SNY00301

Our Whitewater Rafting Trip is a 3-hour, 3.5km white water rafting adventure down the River Dee, beginning at the stunning Horseshoe Falls and finishing here at our centre, Mile End Mill.

Along the way, we will paddle through several rapids, including the Horseshoe Fall, Chainbridge, Tombstones and the mighty Serpent’s Tail.

Upon arrival here at TNR Outdoors, you will meet your raft guide who will kit you out with a wetsuit, helmet, life jacket and paddle!
We will then transport you up to the start point, where you will be given a safety brief before heading out on your Whitewater Rafting Adventure.

What to Expect

When you arrive at our Llangollen rafting centre you will be greeted by our friendly river guides, who will get you signed in and promptly equipped and ready for your whitewater adventure.

We provide transport to the start point (the horseshoe falls) where your raft guide will give your group a full safety briefing to ensure your team a safe and comfortable trip. Once this is completed, we head on to the water for a familiarization with how to paddle the raft, before we plunge over the first vertical drop. The session then takes you an approx. 3.5km adventure over grade 2-3 rapids.

The session finishes at our riverside HQ, where we will use the raft to surf the waves and give your team some challenges for maximum convenience and FUN.

Here’s what one adventurer said

“Booked the FUN white water rafting for 6 eople, we loved it! The guides Tom, Zak and dam were all really friendly and accommodating to our friend who is disabled, they tailored the session to ensure wheelchair transfers were easy. We had a great laugh and got a good soaking playing around in the rapids. We will be back again I’m sure”
