All Extreme Sports and Activities in Patagonia

Rafting

RaftingRafting is a team sport, in which all the crew members in the boat row and position themselves in a coordinated manner in order to balance their weight when going through the river rapids and keep themselves afloat.
The standard number of people allowed on the boat is from six to eight crew members, depending on the boat size.
Rafting beginners are recommended to remain in the center of the boat. Those who are somehow experienced and prefer to row may stay in front, whereas the most experienced generally stay at the back.
The degree of difficulty in rafting is classified according to the rivers, which varies from 1 to 6 degrees, being 1 the easiest and 6 only for experts, as they are extremely dangerous on the limits of navigability criteria.
The companies offering this kind of excursions provide each passenger with all the accessories necessary to enjoy the adventure to the utmost.
The kit is made up of rows, helmets, life jackets, a dry jacket and even a neoprene wet suit to insulate the cold temperature.
