Rafting programs abroad
Rafting programs/opportunities abroad – In these years you have certainly seen groups of people wade the mountain rivers aboard large rafts, to maybe unspoiled landscapes. Initially, Rafting was a recreational activity but it later became a real sporting discipline: a descent of rivers and streams that gives you adrenaline and allows you to fully enjoy nature.
What is Rafting?
Rafting is a somewhat different and adventurous way to discover the mountains and its valleys during the summer. Its name derives from the English “to raft”, which means sailing on a raft. Or rather, on a rowboat.
Its peculiarity lies in the very resistant and self-draining materials with which the boat is made, which allow the structure not to sink into the rushing waters of the streams. The degrees of difficulty of this water sport are established by a scale, called WW and divided into 6 categories of navigability.
On the raft, take place the rowers, who usually make up a crew of 6 or 7 people; they also direct the boat between the rapids through the paddles. Although very fun, sailing in the midst of very rough torrents is not a joke and for this reason it is good to have adequate equipment. In addition to a helmet and a throwing rope for the recovery of those who end up in the water, it is also necessary to have a life jacket and a neoprene wetsuit. At the head of the raft there is a guide, who coordinates the operations.
Strong emotional impact activity
Adventure lovers appreciate Rafting for its strong emotional impact and also for the mountain landscapes that this sport allows you to see.
