Tryweryn Intermediate WW Trip (Dam Release)


Event details

Update: Release confirmed for both days. Book your tickets!
The National White Water centre doesn't provide water release information until a few days before the weekend unfortunately.  Although, at this time of year, there is usually a release at the weekend.  We'll need to keep an eye on the water information.

Planning on a 2 day trip, both days on the Tryweryn.  First day upper river which is a man made course, but natural feeling with some great features.  2nd day is the lower river, still filled by the dam release but a natural river heading towards Bala.  Mainly grade 3 with one grade 4- which can be portaged (Bala mill falls).

For Saturday, you need to book yourself a space on the national White water centre website here https://www.nationalwhitewatercentre.co.uk/. Go to book, then select paddler facility fee. Limited spaces available, so don't leave it until the last minute.  It's £14 for the day.

Accommodation would be camping, and I'm planning to book at https://www.tyisafbala.co.uk/.  Just the one night (Saturday).  You'll need to book yourself.  Probably find a local pub for dinner on the Saturday.
