Simply amazing. Group of friends. We always like outdoor activities and especially rafting. It was a lovely day to spend few hours in the countryside. A car drove us from the hotel to the mountains. The ride was super cool. At the station we met the guys doing the rafting. The activity was super exciting. The water was a bit cold but once you get used to it you really enjoy it. Difficulty I would say it’s medium, nothing extreme. At some spots when they told us it’s safe we just jumped into the river. Wow, we had so much fun. amazing day.
This is one of the best family activities you can do in Sarigerme. We booked for us and 3 kids, the service was excellent. Everything on time and they pay attention to safety a lot. We got instructions before entering the boats-it was our first time. We couldn’t stop laughing, it was so nice. Plus the landscape is so beautiful, full of trees. If you have kids you might need waterproof suits, I wasn’t aware of that. Overall, I recommend this tour, it was so nice to spend some time all together.
It is all started from Sarigerme. Long drive to the rafting point. So please be ready to spend some time to spend in the bus. And it is not the most comfortable bus. You will have breakfast before the rafting starts. There quick explanation how to work together. Rafting is total adventure, even the water is cold it is the best time of the experince. In total it is a nice day out from the hotel.
