Whitewater rafting is a recreational outdoor activity which uses an inflatable raft to navigate a river.
Rafting generally represents a new and challenging environment for participants. Dealing with risk and the need for teamwork is often a part of the experience.
Rafting vacations are the ultimate way to escape the grind, disconnect and spend quality time with friends or loved ones, or even make new lifelong friends. Not only that, there is no better way to experience some of the most scenic and remote wilderness areas and seldom-seen landscapes.
