Canolfan Tryweryn is the National White Water Centre, based near Bala, North Wales. This was the first commercial white water rafting operation to open in the UK back in 1986, and since then it 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.

Only a 15 minutes drive from Cadair View Lodges, we are ideally placed to accommodate both small and large groups.



Located on the banks of the Afon Tryweryn 8km of classic Welsh whitewater - the centre enjoys year-round access to the river as well as year-round whitewater. This is because the Tryweryn is a dam-controlled river (rather than rain-fed), which means that there is often water when all the other rivers are dry. The average dam release is 9 cumecs which makes the upper/centre section a grade 3/4 river with both technical sections (Graveyard) and steep drops (Ski Jump, Chapel Falls), and the lower section (centre to Bala), continuous grade 2/3 with one grade 4 drop.


There are a couple of options, the Rafting Extravaganza, suitable for groups and the Rafting Experience which is suitable for for individuals or groups of less than four people to experience the thrill of whitewater rafting on the Tryweryn!

The Orca Adventure provides the ultimate thrill for people who are looking for a cross between whitewater rafting and canoeing. This session gives you the chance to be in control of the raft and to negotiate the rapids yourself.



As well as providing facilities for recreational boating and coaching courses CT also hosts numerous whitewater events including wild water races, slalom competitions and freestyle events. In addition to these there are also two annual river Festivals; the Freestyle Festival and the 5.10 Coaching Festival. Both of these are a mix of whitewater boating, coaching courses, competitions and evening events and are the highlights of many boater's calendars!
