River Dee Tours

Winding its way through Wales and England for approximately 70 miles (110 km), the River Dee might not be one of the UK’s longest rivers, but it’s certainly among the most scenic. Flowing from the mountains of Snowdonia, tracing the natural border of Wales and England, and finally joining the sea along the Wirral Peninsula, the river passes natural landmarks like Bala Lake, beautiful promenades like The Groves in Chester and wildlife havens like the Dee Estuary.

The easiest way to explore the River Dee is on a boat tour from Chester, where it’s possible to cruise around the Eaton Estate, home of the Duke and Duchess of Westminster, as well as passing through the Meadows wetlands and the Earl’s Eye conservation area. Alternatively, thrill-seekers can head to Llangollen in Wales, where the rocky riverbeds, rapids and waterfalls offer opportunities for white water rafting.
