Based near Lllyn Celyn, the National Whitewater Centre developed the first commercial white water rafting operation in Britain in 1986, and since then has grown to become the largest and most well-respected rafting organisation in the UK. The Tryweryn is a dam released river so water is often flowing when other British rivers are dry, thus producing a unique year round white water venue.
The National Whitewater Centre is known by canoeists throughout the world as a top destination for white water sport, and as the venue for a series of international competitions. The centre offer a superb range of quality activities that can be enjoyed by everyone, no previous experience is required.
