Cardiff Internataional White Water Centre - Winner - Canoe & Kayak UK Magazine's Paddling Facility of the Year

Canoe & Kayak UK Awards Winner








We’ve been consistently impressed with how paddler-friendly the running and organisation of CIWW is. Kayking and Rafting at Cardiff International White Water Centre

Like any artificial whitewater course, the majority of the running costs are covered by rafting, but nevertheless the Cardiff White Water Centre is somewhere, in our experience, that paddlers always feel welcomed by the friendly and enthusiastic staff.

The whitewater is of a truly high standard, and many an important competitions have been hosted there, including the ICF Slalom World Cup, which saw Olympic silver medallists David Florence and Richard Housnlow power to victory in the C2 category back in June.

Whether it’s for an enjoyable ‘park and play’ session in your freestyle boat, or to take part in or watch a competition of any level, Cardiff International White Water is one of the country’s best venues and a deserving winner of the Canoe & Kayak UK Facility of the Year.
