Our White Water Rafting Tour in Rio de janeiro , is done in the Macaé river , located in the district of Casimiro de Abreu. around 02 hours from Rio de Janeiro 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 rapids 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 .

The ride can take from 01 to 02 hours according to the water level in the river. We are back in the base between 11:00am and noon. On the way back to Rio we can stop a local restaurant for lunch ( no included in the price). We are back in Rio around 03:00/04:00pm

Amazing Bucket List Memories

I took my 74 year old mum to Rio to have a white water rafting experience and booked through Rio Adventures after speaking to them directing on line that they were happy to take my mother & I on this once in a life time adventure. On the day Rafael picked us up and drove us out to a beautiful location amidst gorgeous scenery. On our arrival the team taking us talked us through what we needed to do and gave us time to make our self comfortable and safe. We started our adventure and made our way down the river feeling well looked after and in lovely friendly company. At ever stage through the trip we were made comfortable and given time to acclimatise and enjoy the adventure - we couldn't praise them highly enough and enjoyed every second. At the end of the white water we floated in the current of the river enjoying the serene stillness, peace and beauty of it all and wished we could do it all again. Thank you all so much for a wonderful day and a memory that will last always!! Make sure this is a trip you book.
