Rafting or white water rafting is a challenging recreational outdoor activity using an inflatable raft to navigate on a river. This is usually done on white water or different degrees of rough water, in order to thrill and excite the raft passengers.
Like most outdoor sports, rafting in general has become safer over the years and we can say that is the safest between whitewater sports. Thanks to this can be used as family program, so called family rafting. The most important characteristic of a rafting tour is that the participants have to synchronize their moves, that’s why it is a beloved team building activity. Rafting is the paddling sport which is the most recommended to begin whitewater paddling because it is the safest.
Rafts come in a few different forms. We usually use two forms of rafting boat: the most common symmetrical raft in which can fit 6-12 people and so-called trekking boats (in-line rafts) in which can sit 2-3 persons. In case of the raft in every boat is there is a guide, in the case of the in-line raft there is one experimented guide to every fifth boat, but the minimum number of guides on a tour is 2. Usually one guide is with whitewater kayak.
White water rafting trips can promote environmentalism. By experiencing firsthand the beauty of a river, individuals who would otherwise be indifferent to environmental issues may gain a strong desire to protect and preserve that area because of their positive outdoor experience.
The most convenient period to do rafting trips is when the snow is melting (April-June ). This period of the year is from April to May. Buzau and Jiu rivers can be paddled all season long.
