What you'll get up to

River Tubing in North Wales is one of our most popular activities. We will take you and your friends on this unique adventure down the River Dee, where we tackle the exciting rapids and whitewater waves along the way.

This is an adrenaline-fuelled activity that is perfect for stag or hen parties and an amazing day out for family and friends. These tubes are powered by the river’s flow and steered by pure arm strength, so be sure to bring those guns along.

The River Dee which runs through the heart of Llangollen is a hub for paddle sports fanatics. Once on the water and after some proving that you can float, we will head down the twisting and winding rapids. There are three major rapids on our route to which our guides will be on hand to steer you through.

The most famous of rapids is Serpent’s Tail, a tick-off for most aspiring white water enthusiasts. With many fun challenges along the way, our charismatic staff, smiles are never absent by the end of your trip. River Tubing on the River Dee is exclusive to BMA, why not check some of our other water based adventures.

The Bearded Men's top tip

Be sure to bring the gun show along to a River Tubing session with BMA. You will have to negotiate your way down the mighty River Dee and paddle your tube to certain areas along the way.

If we say go, we mean go. But don’t worry you’ll be in safe hands.
