Rafting is a sport which consists of descending down fast moving rivers in inflatable boats called Rafts.
This sport is particularly attractive to those who enjoy high adrenaline activities and even during the winter months an exciting thing to do when the climate agrees and the water is most wild!
Since this is a river which is mainly fed by the rains, the declines in the river Paiva are usually best from October to April.
