Rafting on the Vara river

An exciting and unforgettable experience. We will safely travel down a wild stream on a raft, which is practically unsinkable and self-bailing. Rafting is suitable for everyone, you don’t need any classes or special talents. The team (4-8 people) usually only uses the paddles to control the boat.
