A fun packed family white water rafting adventure that is exhilarating and a great family bonding adventure. Suitable for all ages without any previous experience. Stunning wilderness scenery location that traverses approximately 14km of canyon, lasting around 3 1/2 hours with at least 3 stops. Our total family package was €88 including transportation and lunch and rafting, representing excellent value for money and a fun family day out. The only negative aspects are upon arrival, at rafting location you are heavily persuaded (conned) into renting wetsuits at €5 each and informed water temp is below 7 deg C. (First lie, as It is actually around 13 to 15 Deg C). You are also informed that training shoes are not suitable and pressurised into buying plastic rafting shoes at €5 per pair. (Lie #2, as our raft guide was wearing exactly the same Adidas trainers as my son, which he said was unsuitable). Finally there is also a very hard sell to buy overpriced drinks and a video.
Fun day out with the kids (6yrs old). Easy rafting so if you’re looking for hard core rafting, this is not the place for it. Only annoying thing is that they make you watch a video after lunch which is long and loud. You can buy it for 25€ which is also an exaggerated price. Other than that, a great day and worth the money.
Price was good for the amount of time driving, our buggy was a little underpowered but still fun, we got very dirty but we were laughing, transfers were quick and on time. Lovely views all the way around. Quite a lot of stopping to allow the convoy to catch up but we didn't mind. Considering the price we would recommend.
There was a bit of waiting around at the start without any one telling you what's happening. Definitely something these excursions lack and thats commincation with the people they are meant to entertain/host etc. However the quad biking was super fun.. very dirty and dusty so be prepared.
Amazing raft experience, would definitely recommend! It goes little slow waiting for everyone but just have entertaining comedy people on the same boat, no diva’s and none who don’t paddle, it weighs you down lol
