All in all an unforgettable experience in the truly breathtaking scenery of the Socca Valley..... definitely do it..... preferably with this organizer too!

For our first time rafting it was incredibly great! Booking, getting the equipment and arriving at the spot was very quick and uncomplicated. Our guide seemed very competent and put us in a really good mood. We were all so enthusiastic that we would do it again at any time. The people in the office were also very friendly and accommodating.
