White Water Rafting Wales
We have access to the best White Water Rafting in Wales our recommended course is the River Teifi (Wales) venue for the British White Water Rafting Wales Championships in December 2008.
The River Teifi is the longest river in Wales, It has an amazing array of wild life and the trip is about 2½ hours long (10km) with an average river difficulty of 1- 3. You may also have the chance of a good rapid swim during the trip too!
The International scale of White Water Rafting difficulty is rated from: Grade 1- (Easy) to Grade 6- (Unraftable). Most of the rivers in the UK are usually Grade 1-3 runs but can change depending upon water levels. International White Water Rafting destinations such as the river Zambezi, the Alps etc. typically run grades 4-5.
If you are looking for a fun group activity then white water rafting is a good choice, however if you are looking for a high adrenaline, “white water” experience then we would personally recommend White Water Surf Kayaking or Gorge Scrambling as our most exciting ”white water” experiences.
All the river systems in the world are either fed by melting snow, glaciers or rain. In the UK rivers are predominantly rain fed systems, making rafting wales conditions unpredictable.
