Rio Paiva is considered the best river in Portugal for the practice of rafting. In 2006 it was considered the river with the cleanest waters in Europe, get a very direct contact with nature and feel the force of white water, as you descent the river with this high energy activitiy.
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!
