What we will do

- The wild nature is perfect for a thrilling rafting experience like the one we are about to embark on.
- Before starting, we enjoy a cup of coffee made on an open fire before wearing a helmet and life jacket and learning how to sit and control the raft during the excursion.
- For the first 2 kilometres, we sail along calm waters taking in the marvellous scenery: small tranquil bays with tree branches stretching out onto the water, patient fishermen and a bucolic countryside.
- We then reach the most adventurous part of our excursion and our ability to work as teams is tested as we deal with the tumultuous rapids that give us a shot of adrenaline! By following the instructions of our guide, we tackle and overcome the challenges posed by the river for a truly unforgettable experience.
