White Water Rafting
Boyne Valley Activities launched their White Water Rafting last year from their Slane base and it’s proving to be a rip roaring success!
One of the first companies to introduce rafting to the country and the first to run commercial rafting on The River Boyne, this trip is a must for anyone interested in having great craic and a great experience on what is a fantastic stretch of water.
These 8 man inflatable Rafts are hugely robust and can handle anything the mighty weirs of the Boyne can throw at them, the question is-can you!! Led by experienced guides the rafts will be thrown in to the many weirs on the way and make sure to hold on tight as the large volumes of water suck the raft into the stoppers and bounce their way down river. You will get a reprieve on some of the flat stretches (if you are still in the Raft!) but it won’t be long until you meet the next weir.
All equipment is supplied, wetsuits, buoyancy aids, and helmets for your protection. There are showers at our base and sometimes even a nice hot whiskey.
The trip is 2 hours long and is becoming a primary experience in the Boyne valley.
