Bala, Gwynedd:: Step inside an inflatable seven person raft on the mighty River Tryweryn for a white water rafting experience in Wales that will see you challenge the elements as you work the rapids and fly over the water. Your guide kits everyone up and brings you all up to speed on white water rafting techniques and instruction to get you on your way. Raft the runs up and down the river (as many times as four goes depending on time), as you grow in confidence you all get wetter and wetter! The River Tryweryn set in North Wales is graded 3 on the UK s white water grading system which starts at one (a few splashes) and goes up to six (too rough to offer commercially). So get ready for a white-knuckle ride that will have you screaming with sheer excitement. Availability: Selected Sundays from March to mid October, subject to water releases by the local river authority. Dates fill very quickly; book at least six weeks in advance. Weather: Severe adverse weather conditions or local environmental issues can affect water releases and rafting - participants MUST call the venue two days prior to the experience to check weather conditions and the latest water release information. Duration: The experience lasts for around two hours from initial introduction to debrief. Once booked, the time quoted allows for registration, any preparation and is not necessarily the start time of the experience. Numbers On Day: The raft holds up to seven people plus a qualified instructor. Spectators: Spectators are welcome to watch from the riverbank. A camera will come in handy. Spectators' safety remains their own responsibility at all times. There are covered facilities and a cafe, but they might not see all of the action from there. Dress Code: Bring swimwear, a towel, a pair of old trainers and a change of clothes. Prepare to get wet, but there are hot shower facilities at the venue. Wetsuits, buoyancy aids and helmets will be provided. Glasses cannot be worn (contact lenses are OK). Guidelines: From Llangollen follow the A5 to Corwen. Approximately a mile and a half past Corwen, turn left towards Bala along the A494. At Bala turn right towards Trawsfynydd on the A4212. Canolfan Tryweryn is signposted on the left just a mile past Frongoch village. Look out for the brown tourist information signs depicting a kayaker and National Whitewater Centre. Please park in one of the designated car parks and report to reception with your paperwork. Restrictions: Min age is 12. Max chest girth is 49''. No experience necessary but participants must be confident swimmers and fit enough to climb back into the raft if they fall out. Any medical conditions must be declared before booking and venue may test fitness. Other Info:
