White Water Rafting Northampton – this popular centre on the River Nene was not only Northamptonshire’s but the UK’s first pumped artificial whitewater course and we’re giving you the opportunity to ride in a raft on these manmade swirling white waters.
Three enormous pumps further upstream control the discharge of water down the 300m section. This means that if you’re a beginner you can learn the basics of white water rafting in the fairly placid conditions at this renowned Northampton venue and then increase the difficulty as your skill and experience improve.
Your two hour session will include a comprehensive safety and rafting technique briefing onshore then a short session on flat water allowing you to practice paddling and manoeuvring your six seater raft before you set off to complete up to five or six thrilling circuits. As the rapids you’ll be riding are entirely purpose-built access is incredibly easy and spectators can watch the fun all the way around the dug out water channel.
Wetsuits windproof jackets floatation aids and safety helmets are provided by this freindly set up in Northampton so all you need to bring for your rafting escapade on the whitewater is a swim costume and sense of adventure. Fully trained and experienced rafting guides will ensure you receive the necessary instruction to maximise your enjoyment of the day – you are guaranteed to have fun get wet and be exhausted!
This white water rafting Northampton activity at the brilliant white water rafting centre on the south east outskirts of Northampton is just one from our huge selection of experience days available with an Intotheblue voucher.
