Rafting or white water rafting is a challenging recreational activity utilizing a inflatable raft to navigate a river or other bodies of water. This is usually done on whitewater or different degrees of rough water, in order to thrill and excite the raft passengers. The development of this activity as a leisure sport has become popular since the mid 1970s.
WHITE WATER RAFTING tour IN RIO – Program
Our white water rafting tour in Rio , is done in the Macaé river , located in the district of Casimiro de Abreu. around 02 hours from Rio city. The river is 80 km (50 miles) long with a rafting course of 8 km (5 miles) long. Once in the river, the rafting experience can last from 1:30 to 2 hours, according to the water level. The course has around 15 rapids, ranging from level 01 to 05 in summer, 01 to 04 in spring, 01 to 03 in fall and 01 to 02 in winter . Usually, in summer we have a higher water level, which increases its difficulty and speed. So in those days, rafting experience is more intense but with a shorter ride. In winter, the ride can be a little longer as water level decreases, as does the speed. The average water temperature is around 22º C (70ºF), year round. The landscape along the rafting course is awesome, and travelers can witness the lush vegetation of the Atlantic Forest .
