White water rafting
White water rafting involves one or a group of people paddling an inflatable raft down a wild water river. This is down fast moving water and propelled by paddles and the natural current.
A river journey is one of the most enjoyable ways to experience the rural areas and natural environments of any country. These pleasures are complemented by an even greater thrill: running through powerful, fast-flowing rapids.
White water rafting is an activity open to people of all ages and abilities. Being in good shape helps with the experience of white water rafting, as you are often required to walk down to the river and then back up once you've finished. This can be the most tiring part. Rafting needn't be just exertion, it is possible to incorporate longer, more relaxed runs with stops over night.
Young people will need to work as a team and follow instructions. And one thing is certain: everyone will get very wet!
