When people hear about whitewater rafting they mostly imagine powerful rapids, dangerous environment and adrenaline rush. Rafting can most certainly be all of that, but it can also be much more! That’s why we have put together this list of 7 reasons why rafting is a GREAT summer activity – for EVERYBODY.
Rivers are the veins of the Planet Earth. They have always been interesting to people, either to explore or to use them. Most parts of rivers, usually the most beautiful parts, are hard to reach on land. Navigating a river in a raft or kayak allows you to enter these special places! Imagine dens forests, lot’s of biodiversity, great views and much more.
Even though we live in houses and big cities we truly belong in the nature. Fresh air, crystal clear water, animals and plants,… It’s what was surrounding us for the most of the human history. Nature inspires people because this is where we come from. And let’s not forget about Vitamin D refill when we are out there having fun in the sun. Join a rafting trip and feel the connection with Mother Earth.
Paddling is a great workout! People mostly imagine that for paddling there is only arms work required. But this is not true. There are many muscle groups included in the paddling movement such as most of your back muscles, arm muscles, core muscles that are creating the support for your stroke and also legs which are keeping you in the raft.
On our trips, experienced guides will teach you the right technique so you will be paddling safely and efficiently.
Power of the moving water is incredible. Mastering the rapids will definitely get your heart pumping but it will also fill you with filling of joy and triumph. It is important to choose the right rafting trip according your fitness and experience. You can find detailed descriptions with level of difficulty stated for all rafting trips that we offer on our website.
Rafting is a team sport and thus a great way to meet new people! Teams are made out of 6-8 people who share the experience together. Who knows, maybe you meet your future partner on a rafting trip ;)
