The Bearded Men's top tip

If you’re looking for that true adrenaline rush then it doesn’t get better than white water rafting in Wales. You’ll have a unique perspective of the beautiful Dee Valley and its incredible landscape from the river.

Our rafting trips come down and under the bridge in the centre of Llangollen so if you have friends and family who are not taking part, ask us what time we will be coming through and you can make sure they have front row seats to the action. Cameras at the ready.

The best time ever


These guys are great to have an adventure with and will take care of you from start to finish. Even with the booking process Bearded Men made everything super simple and easy to manage, they do it all for you. The equipment is of high quality and the guiding is even better. They were very welcoming and easy to get along with, it was like being in a massive dingy with The Greatest Showman.

We will defiantly be booking again, highly recommended.
