Water is directly diverted from the Trent River into the a man-made whitewater run designed specifically for rafting excitement. It is one of the largest-volume courses in the UK. A whitewater course is the only way to raft on the Trent River because there are no natural whitewater rapids.
Rafting is available on the Trent River throughout the year, but it is more popular during the warm summer months. Flows on the Trent River are 28 m3/s and trips generally last 1/2 day.
