Canoeing Rafting & Rowing
The map of Canoeing and rafting rowing showcases locations best places where you can get on the water. The National White Water Centre offers fantastic white water adventures on natural rapids on the River Tryweryn in Snowdonia National Park. Set in stunning Welsh hills, the dam-controlled River Tryweryn has high flows ideal for exhilarating white water activities throughout the year. The River Tryweryn is open for white water adventures any day the Llyn Celyn reservoir is releasing, offering on average 200 days a year of reliable and impressive white water.
Chalfont Park Canoe Club was founded in 1952 by members of the canoe club of a research establishment at Chalfont Park, Buckinghamshire. The club continues to be based at Chalfont Park and is owned and run by a committee of its members. The club has plenty of experience and younger members who have obtained their "Basic Canoeing Certificate." The club is based in central Bucks, about 15 miles from London and easily accessible by road or the Grand Union Canal. The club runs two sessions on Sunday afternoons, and members come from London, Oxford, the City, and various other parts of Bucks. The standard of Canoeing is very high, and many Canoeists from other Clubs consider themselves lucky to be invited to Chalfont on a Sunday afternoon, as they consider it a world-class venue for Canoeing. It is particularly well suited to those who can get there by Canal, as this means they do not need to set up their camp. It is a family-oriented venue, with canoe-based play for the children (and adults who wish) and plenty of refreshments available, although the children can bring their food/drink to consume at lunch - whist and chess are there too for the adults who wish.
The Calvert Kielder is another unique canoeing and rafting location in the UK that provides a remote and serene experience for outdoors people, nature-lovers, and river novices alike. The river is best suited to beginner water levels, but there's no chance of getting wet as it's only fordable in the very lowest water. The Calvert Kielder's main attraction is the surrounding woodland, for which it's best known, more than the actual river itself. Spanning 654 acres in total, Kielder Forest is one the largest forest in England and home to a population of Red squirrels, for which it was declared a reserve in 2008. Although this upper section of the South Tyne is surrounded by woodland, it is a popular location for fishing. The water mainly consists of small 2-3 ft deep pools with some runs and riffles (in the Whitehall section) for your float fishing.
