Rafting means going down the river currents in a rubber boat. This is an exciting, adrenaline and adventurous activity. There is a special experience which stems from the feeling that we are left to the mercy of the current, which is out of control, and we follow and adapt to it so we can experience the union with nature. Before going into the boat you are given instructions about the equipment, behaviour in the boat and the way of paddling. Depending on the location, this activity is divided in terms of speed and complexity into several levels, from class 1 to class 6. Rafting in big boats, where there is room for 10 people is appropriate only during high water levels, while low water level periods make ideal conditions for smaller canoe or kayak boats that can carry 2-3 people and whose form allows passing through sections which have just enough water for a real kayaking experience. The ideal time for this activity is the springtime and early summer.
