When can you raft?
The season lasts from about 20 May to September / October. In the spring flood, when all the melt water from the snow melt in the mountain fills the river, there is plenty of water and the river goes fast and streak. Some parts of the river are not suitable for rafting at this time, but experienced guides always have an overview of where to raft properly regardless of water level.
In July, the river is calming and you can raft in other parts of the river. This is the time for the best extreme trips, there is still plenty of water, but the river no longer runs floodlights. Slightly quieter water flow means that stretches of river that are tough during the flood are suitable for families and those who want a quieter ride.
