River rafting is thrilling and provides an adrenalin rush like no other sport. You’re forced to face the might of a seething, churning river and come out at the other end, safe and sound. Your heart would be in your throat throughout the journey, but it would be an unforgettable experience nonetheless.
River rafting is great for people who’re just starting out on extreme water sports and don’t want to face the river alone. Unlike kayaking, river rafting can be a group activity. We at Taiga Travel have conducted several river rafting tours to Russia. Our experts will help you determine which rivers will be ideal for your skill level.
