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!

The National Whitewater Centre offers a variety of sessions 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 scenery.

Orcas: Two-man inflatable rafts that provide the ultimate thrill for people who are looking for a cross between white water rafting and canoeing.

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.

If you don't fancy the adventure of the river, don't worry: there are riverside walks, cafe and picnic areas which give you the opportunity to take in the splendour of the surroundings. We are situated in the heart of Snowdonia National Park, and the breathtaking scenery of the area offers a fantastic retreat, not only for the water sports enthusiast, but for everyone.
