Experience the thrill of rushing through the raging Lower Yough river during this whitewater rafting trip!
Get ready for an exciting day of whitewater rafting on this Lower Yough Rafting Trip!
After meeting your guides and receiving your life jacket and helmet, you'll be transported to the staging area where you'll begin your river trip.
Dividing into groups of 4 - 6 people, you'll climb into your rafts for a quick introduction to river running before hitting the water. River safety, paddle strokes, boat maneuvering and what to expect on the water will all be covered. From there you'll head to the river and the fun begins!
After a few moments of getting comfortable in your raft and listening to your captain's commands, you'll float into the first Class III rapid, Entrance. That sets the stage and gives you a feel for the rest of the day.
The Lower Yough is 7.5 miles of Class III - IV whitewater rapids. It is considered a drop and pool river: the rapids are separated by calm deep pools, allowing you to catch your breath and enjoy the scenery.
You will stop along halfway through the day for a deli style lunch - complete with cookies & Fruit! It is a thrilling whitewater experience & full of adventure!
For a little more excitement, the trips are run as "guide assisted" trips. You will captain your own raft, but the guides are always close by to lend a helping hand.
Before the large rapids, the entire group will be pulled to the side of the river or "eddy out" in river lingo. for a description of the rapid.
Guides in safety kayaks will go ahead of you and place themselves throughout the rapid. When given the signal, all rafts will follow the lead boat through the whitewater. It is an experience you'll remember for a lifetime!
