When you think of rafting you likely imagine water splashing or inflatable boats flipping. If this intimidates you -- think again. Rafting offers experiences as diverse as the states of water. Rafting activities in Cardiff, and its environs, range from casual drifting to team activities building seagoing rafts -- but most of all they give you an excuse to visit Cardiff.
Since you choose your own sort of holiday experience -- relaxing or adventurous -- consider reasons to make it a holiday floating on the water. The same rafting experiences that draw families together more closely can build a better office team. A raft building experience, like those offered by Quest adventures, let's you compete to bring together materials placed on a beach and let the rafts carry you to sea. This experience builds mutual trust among colleagues that carries over to your firm's mission.
Of course, group experiences can simply be about fun. If you want a stag or hen party, rafting offers something unique and -- well, memorable certainly understates it. Cardiff may not really have a crosscurrent to another dimension, like on Torchwood, but it does have the confluence of River Wye and River Severn feeding into the tides of Bristol Channel and Cardiff Bay. This allows diverse conditions of currents, wave heights, and tidal levels.
If you don't have some group of mates you go about with, rafting is one way to find some. Sign up for a raft trip with a group of strangers, and meet new people even as you discover a new experience. Then you and your new friends may choose to enjoy some of the other activities in Cardiff. One good thing about rafting is that it immediately gives you and your friends something to talk about. Rafting itself may take just a few hours out of your day, which leaves plenty of time to build new relationships further.
In many cities that only means clubbing -- but not in Cardiff. While that is an option, Cardiff is only 40 kilometres from Brecon Beacons National Park, so more nature on solid ground is just a short jaunt away. If you want more water, coastal drives beckon, as do beaches. If a day of water soaked exercise is all the nature you want, you can watch professionals exercise at any of the area's sporting events, or just tour the distinctive architecture. In the end, rafting is just one more reason to join the 10 million visitors to Europe's fastest growing capital each year.
