White water rafting

White Water Rafting

€50 per person

Minimum age 16

Boyne Valley Activities continue to run their White Water Rafting 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.

Give yourself 3 hours for the experience with 2 hours in the water for one of the primary experiences in the Boyne valley.
