A dam released river in Wales, river Tryweryn is the ideal place for all rafting enthusiasts. Being a dam released river, the river is flowing all the year round and is accessible all through the year.
Based in Bala, the river begins from Llyn Tryweryn located in the Snowdonia National Park and travels for about 19 km, finally meeting up with river Dee at Bala. One of the chief tributaries of Dee, this river gets all its water from the dam. Scheduled releases of 9 and 12 m3/s of frothy whitewater make the river alluring to hardcore rafting enthusiasts.
To make your River Tryweryn White Water Rafting expedition more exciting, boulders have been placed on the river bed, ensuring further modifications of the natural whitewater rapids. Graveyard is one of the popular rapids that will certainly be one of the most memorable challenges for the rafters. A significant river in North Wales, River Tryweryn supports several whitewaters and is indeed considered to be a hot spot for whitewater kayaking and rafting. Sporting rapids up to Class 4, the waters offer ample opportunity to all interested rafters to make their trip even more enthralling!
The entire course of the river is dotted with numerous hydraulic jumps, which will excite you and keep your adrenalin rushing. As you raft through the river and reach to some of the most challenging sections, you may drop into a foaming channel and steer past a big boulder powerful enough to overturn your boat! So, once you plan to spend your holiday shouting out in the raging waters, this is surely the best place to opt for!
