you dream to spend an unfogettable day fully with adrenalin,
excitement, wild nature ?
Turkey. Turkey has
plenty of mountains and rivers perfect for river rafting.It's a
little known fact, but Turkey has some excellent rivers for
white water rafting, including one that is rated by professional
rafters as one of the top ten in the world, the Coruh River..
The beauty of rafting is that no previous experience at all
is required to experience this exhilarating outdoor sport. Each
raft, which carries 4-8 people, is under the full control of a
professional guide. You, the crew, paddle in accordance with the
guide's instructions and like magic, the raft goes exactly where
it is supposed to. All that is required from you is to be able
to swim, and to be prepared to get wet! You are fitted out with
a lifejacket and helmet, and if the weather is on the cool side,
jackets, wet suits and bootees will also be provided. After a
briefing from the guide, you are all set to challenge the rapids,
and to experience the beauty of the mountain scenery during
calmer stretches of the river.
As well as being an thrilling action sport, rafting in Turkey
is also an excellent way to see aspects of the country that most
visitors never see. The routes are generally in remote areas
which require a drive off the beaten track, through forests,
mountain passes and traditional villages, before reaching the
river. The local people are friendly and welcoming, and on
camping trips in particular you have the chance for more
interaction with the local way of life.
For those who are new to the sport, it is probably best to
try a one day tour as a taster. Once you get the bug, longer
tours are available, from weekend trips to one week long.
