White Water Rafting

Get ready to experience white water rafting at Tees Barrage International White Water Centre, the leading watersports destination in the North East of England.

Tees Barrage is home to two international standard courses and boasts the steepest drop in the UK! White water rafting is the perfect activity to create some truly memorable moments with friends and family no matter your age or experience level.

All the equipment you require will be provided on the day and our highly trained and friendly team will help you get to grips with the basics before turning up the heat to tackle the wild waters in an exclusively chartered raft. You and your comrades will conquer the 300m white water course and soak in the fury and madness of the raging rapids as you negotiate the boulder-strewn waters with the help of your skilled raft guide.

The course at Tees Barrage is powered by four giant Archimedes Screws, each weighing a whopping 30 tons that can pump over 14 tonnes of water around the course every second. The addition of the lazyboy conveyor also means that the fun doesn’t stop as you will be carried back to the top to weave, spin, surf and flip (if you’re feeling adventurous) over and over again! Each session also includes a run on the extreme course and the chance to tackle the biggest artificial drop in the UK to round of your epic adventure!

White water rafting is the perfect opportunity for exhilarating corporate and team building days and in close proximity to Newcastle and York it’s the perfect activity for a stag and hen party. Whatever the occasion, it’s time to scratch white water rafting off your bucket list with an adrenaline pumping adventure at Tees Barrage. Round up the squad and book your session now.
