There is nothing quite like getting onto a raft, rushing down a river and crashing through white water rapids. The adrenaline rush is simply exhilarating, it really is hard to beat!
Even better, this is an extreme sport that anyone can do – even complete beginners without any prior experience. So you can have an amazing time on the water without ever having stepped foot inside a raft before.
And the best thing of all is that the summer is nearly here, and that means … rafting season!
Here are a few things you need to know if you want to go rafting this year.
What Do You Need to Know?
You don’t need to know a lot in order to enjoy white water rafting. Compared to some other outdoor sports, you only need a tiny bit of training on the day of the activity, and there is no need to practice for weeks or months beforehand.
So you can start the day with absolutely no experience and end it tackling some mighty white water rapids!
Safety is clearly important, and that’s why you’ll always go with an experienced guide. He or she will direct the raft and make sure you stay out of any rapids that are too heavy for you.
They will also make sure you wear your lifejacket and helmet at all times to keep you safe.
Why You’ll LOVE Rafting
The thrill of crashing over white water rapids is just unbeatable. It’s so fun! It’s the perfect way to experience a real adventure in a short amount of time, and you’ll have a fantastic time crashing over the rapids, enjoying the amazing scenery … and getting very wet!
But it’s more than that.
It’s also great for your body. You’ll use all your muscle groups and burn off some serious calories during an afternoon on the water.
And, like most outdoor adventure activities, it’s also great for your mind. After you’ve finished, you’ll feel energised, refreshed and ready to take on anything.
Try It Yourself
Now that spring is here and summer is just around the corner, start planning your white water rafting trip. You can go rafting all over the world, but if you want to stay in Europe, you might want to consider a destination like the So?a River in Slovenia – few places can match it for beauty and sheer excitement.
So start planning your rafting trip, and try this incredible activity out for yourself.
Awesome people, awesome activities and awesome parties! I seriously don’t remember of a time where I had so much euphoria for such a long period of time! Thanks guys!
