About

Experience the extreme sport of white water rafting at Lee Valley White Water Centre in Hertfordshire. The centre that played host to the Canoe Slalom events during the London 2012 Games now offers a variety of white water activities including Hydrospeeding, Hot Dog sessions and paddleboarding. The venue also offers expert tuition in canoeing and kayaking.

A white water experience at this world class venue is ideal for any stag, hen or birthday party and great for corporate days out too!

If you don't fancy taking part in an activity yourself, you can always give it as a gift to a water sports enthusiast. Gift vouchers are available to buy online for rafting, Hot Dog sessions and Water Wipeout.

The centre welcomes every type of visitor! Whether you've just had time on the water training and want to kick back, or you're looking for somewhere to have a drink and a bite to eat with your mates, you can watch all the action from the terrace and make use of the licensed café bar.
