I booked this rafting trip with Rapid Horizons after searching the internet for activities in the peak district.

The directions and prior information were all good and booking was very easy.

When I arrived the first thing I noticed was how friendly/professional the team was. We were kitted up and then given our safety brief.

The first section of the river was a really nice paddle through stunning derbyshire countryside. The guides had us doing various challenges which ended up with us getting pretty wet!

The second section included some rapids which we swam down and then we tried 'surfing' a wave.......which again ended up with us getting wet!!

The trip fininshed in Matlock bath with an amazing view of High Tor. The mini bus whipped us back to the start where we fininshed with a drink in the pub!

Top trip. Going to check out the other rivers with Rapid Horizons.

We were lucky enough to have been given this afternoon rafting trip as a present. We rafted from Darley Dale to Matlock along the River Derwent on a sunny Monday in June with our guide for the afternoon - Jon. We chose a leisurely paddle and had a fantastic afternoon. Would highly recommend this UK based adventure company regardless of age or ability.
