Rafting

Rafting is the river descent with a specially designed inflatable boat. It is a sport that is directed to everyone without requiring special fitness and muscle strength. In rafting there are various difficulty levels on a scale from one to six. The degree of difficulty of a route, depends on the morphology of the river, the number of passes and their access difficulty.
