Enjoy summer white water and improve your grade 2 moving water skills.


The course provides 6 days of training to help you control your boat on grade II white water. the holiday has one rest/explore day. If your looking to improve your skills and knowledge of the river environment this week holiday is great to increase your kayaking white water confidence and control, and have lots of fun. Each evening there will be a classrom session with media feedback and course information sheets to go in your course folder.

We think grade II is a great way to enjoy river kayaking and aim to help you master white water skills to progress your paddling. Great experience to work towards your 3 star ww kayak or just feel confident and in control on the river kayaking.



The Tryweryn is a river in North Wales which starts at Llyn Tryweryn in the Snowdonia National Park and joins the river Dee at Bala. We use the facilities and course at the National White Water Centre.

The River Dee flows through parts of both Wales and England, we use grade 2/3 sections around Llangollen
