Family rafting Wales

If you’re planning family days out in South Wales, you’re in luck! We are one of only two on-demand white water courses in the UK, and we can offer unrivalled family adventure days during which you’ll get to experience all the thrills of our course in a family-friendly format. For our family rafting Cardiff sessions, we lower the water levels and speed of the rapids to ensure it’s safe for white water rafting with kids, so that the entire brood can enjoy the family day out together.

Family experience days for all ages

The CIWW family white water rafting course is a fantastic choice for family adventure days because it offers the opportunity to get everyone on board. Starting at as young as six, the session is suitable for families of all ages and abilities, and it makes for an excellent way to mix up your family activities. 

And with a raft which fits up to six people, you can get everyone involved – from your nieces and nephews to the aunts, uncles and even beloved grandparents who are up for a good laugh and a potential soaking.

Outdoor family activities for the holidays

White water rafting family experience gifts were simply made for the holidays. Going white water rafting with kids is a great way to keep them entertained on the weekends, amp up the adventure during school holidays, or even as one of your family birthday ideas.

Our white water rafting family sessions take place on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings, running throughout all school holidays. We’ll provide expert training as well as all the equipment you need, so all you need to bring to the family white water rafting is your sense of adventure. 

Family days out Wales

The fun doesn’t stop when your family rafting session is over. The CIWW grounds are packed full with family activities you can line up for some exciting family days out in South Wales. We have a range of indoor and outdoor activities suitable for kids who have extra energy to spend after your family white water rafting trips. Plus, our on-site café is just the stop you need if you fancy warming up with a cuppa and some snacks at the end of your action-packed family experience days.

Reasons to try white water rafting for families

There’s a reason why our family white water rafting sessions have proved so popular with visitors. As well as providing an exciting alternative to tried and tested family activities such as board games and camping, white water rafting family courses offer a number of perks, including:

Bonding family experience days

A big part of what makes family rafting a popular choice when it comes to family adventure days is the opportunity for bonding it offers. With six people per raft, you can pack a whole lot of relatives on the family white water rafting course and use the experience to make your relationships stronger by working together as a team.

Cost-effective family gift experience

Group activities for larger parties tend to be pricy, so fitting all your favourite people into affordable family activities could be quite a challenge. Our family rafting sessions are priced at just £25 per person, and are suitable for all family members. What’s more, each session lasts a whopping two hours, so you’ll be getting great value for money out of your white water rafting family course.

Year-round family days out in Wales

As we mentioned, our facilities are open all throughout the year, which makes our family rafting sessions an extremely popular choice for family adventure days during the school holidays. Offering a great opportunity to go white water rafting with kids and spend some quality time together, our family rafting slots are spread out across a few days each week, so you can find a time that suits your schedule.

From February half term and Easter break to the long summer holidays and even October half term, family white water rafting is the perfect way to keep your children entertained and make the school holidays unforgettable. Whether you want to celebrate the warming weather or get your outdoor family adventure days before autumn chill sets in, family rafting is the perfect way to keep your energetic brood entertained.

Based in a convenient Cardiff Bay location (a stone’s throw away from the city centre), CIWW is a popular destination for white water rafting with kids over six. It’s the perfect setting for family days out in South Wales and attracts visitors from all over the country looking to infuse some fun into their family activities.

The repeat entertainment value of white water rafting for families

If you’ve ever navigated the rapids, you’ll know that no two sessions are the same. This is also true for family white water rafting trips. We often see familiar faces returning to CIWW for their family adventure days because they can’t get enough of the thrill and enjoyment of taking to the waves with their loved ones.
