Want to experience White Water Open Canoeing? This is the canoe course for you - a day of playing on the river learning about the canoe and what it can do, and how to get to where you want to go on white water.
By the end of this day, you will realise just what a fantastic and fun tool it is on moving water. We will start off on some flat water to ensure you can create power and have control, then pretty quickly we'll introduce you to eddy turns, ferry gliding, checking and setting and reading the river. These skills will enable you to pick your way down the rapids, and hopefully stay dry!
A great day in amazing boats enjoying the wild Welsh rapids!
This experience lasts for around 7 hours.
