Lee Valley White Water Centre was host to the London 2012 Olympic Games and you can now experience a range of activities at this venue. Rafting the Olympic course is a must for anyone ticking things of their bucket list! You'll get several runs down the course. We progressively up the fear factor each time and by your final run you’ll be surfing, high siding, spinning and nose dunking with the very best! You can also choose from our range of other white water activities and a choice of canoeing and kayaking sessions, from family paddling on our lake to mastering our two white water courses.

It was my first time rafting and it was a very good experience. Marco was my instructor and he was amazing. He was a patient and obviously experienced and kept the fun level to the max.

Loved every moment. Went with my work for our summer party. All the instructors were very helpful and friendly. Got about 5-6 goes around the course which was brilliant. Excellent for work trips or parties. Will be going back!

Visited here on their 'Fast and Furious' Fridays and booked the boat for 9 of us - which is a good saving for groups (£38pp). Jorge was an excellent instructor with a good sense of humour and was really patient when some of us arrived...More

No and not something that the Instructors will do either. We still lost three of six from the raft with one of us under it. Pretty scary.
