We travelled 90 minutes to go rafting (note: many activity companies are closed in October, the UK half term), and we were not disappointed. It was well organised, with plenty of wetsuits for all sizes. The equipment was well maintained and everything felt safe. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and our guide (Christian) was outstanding! He was knowledgable, a great comedian and singer, he turned the experience from ‘this is great’ to ‘this is exceptional’ I highly recommend booking a rafting experience with these guys. It was perfect!

A must-do for adventurers! Brzaj (sorry if I've misspelt your name) and his team gave us such a great experience from start to finish. He created such a great vibe with the team. The caving and cliff jumping is a fantastic addition to the expedition!

The rafting tour was really awesome and highly diverse. The cave and cliff jumping parts were just great and shouldn‘t be avoided. Our guide Guiseppe was really funny and made the most of our tour.

very good experience spent with a dynamic and welcoming team. special mention to our great skyper Ivan (French speaking). Very beautiful landscape with a visit to a small cave as a bonus.

Kristjian was the best guide we could have imagined. Not only did we have aching muscles from rafting but also laughing so much. Thank you so much!!
