We will be paddling Grade 2/3 rivers on this trip and the trip has been graded whitewater intermediate. Depending on water levels these may raise to a Grade 4. To assess your suitability for a trip please read this description. If you have any doubt please talk to the lead coach.
Please note that river levels can change dramatically dependent on water levels and therefore it may not always be possible to support a paddler safely on a river in all conditions. Remember that others may have to support you on the river too.
The lead coach’s decision will take in as many risk factors as possible and will depend on an individual’s ability to take part and recent/known experience. The coach’s decision is final as to who can/cannot take part. We support paddler progression but this must sit alongside our responsibility to you and others to have an enjoyable but above all safe paddle.
Rivers to be determined on the weekend, subject to weather conditions. Possible rivers are the:
