Rapid learning at Lee Valley

Date Posted: 16/01/2015

Tackle white water rafting at Lee Valley White Water Centre in Hertfordshire this year.

School groups can take advantage of the centres off-peak discounted rates for groups.

The 2015 white water rafting season launches on 28th February giving students the chance to confront the raging rapids at what was one of the London 2012 venues.

No experience is necessary and all equipment is provided, including wetsuits, boots, helmets and buoyancy aids. Participants are accompanied by an experienced raft guide who will take them through a safety briefing on the flat water lake before tackling the rapids.

White water activities available at the centre include hydrospeeding, which is similar to bodyboarding but on the rapids; and hot dog sessions, which are held on two person inflatables and provide a heart pumping introduction to kayaking on the rapids.
