Rafting as a activity is one of the most amazing adrenaline rush rides. There is so many of them around the globe and was really dificult to make a list from what we consider as a best in the world.This is our Top 5 rafting location in the world.
1.Alsek and Tatshenshini Rivers, Alaska/Canada
Glaciers and icebergs are among the attractions on these two rivers flowing through an astonishing northern wilderness of mountains and tundra on the borders of Alaska and Canada. As well as superb white water, the trip offers you an unforgettable experience of wildlife, from grizzlies and moose to spawning salmon and luscious blueberries.
2. Zambezi River, Zimbabwe
The Zambezi River at Victoria Falls provides an adrenaline-soaked adventure for experienced rafters. Nearly half of the rapids along the river are graded as Class IV. Aside from the dramatic drops and massive swells, the river offers rafters a chance to see crocodiles and hippopotamuses up close.
3.Chilko River, British Columbia
This river trip is all about big whitewater. It takes place in big country, among glaciated peaks, alpine forests and, of course, big whitewater. The Chilko is no joke and its nonstop stretch of Class IV whitewater is notorious on the North American continent.
4.Franklin River, Tasmania
Activism and conservation have helped preserve the environment around the Franklin River, making Tasmania an unexpected whitewater rafting destination. A company called Tasmanian Expeditions led the first commercial trip in the late-1970s and continues to be a leader in local conservation efforts. The best time of the year to come rafting here is between November and January. One recommended rafting trip here takes nine days, which admittedly, is a big commitment to the sport. But if you’re up for the challenge, you’ll be rewarded with waterfalls, gorges, and epic rapids to battle.
5. Sun Kosi – Nepal
This is the original expedition in Nepal. It offers impressive big volume Grade IV rapids that draw rafters from all over the world. You’ll travel through the hearth of Nepal from the Tibet border to the Indian one, witnessing the change of scenery from the Himalayan mountains, lush forests and ending in the dusty plains. This trip is as much about the off river adventure as it is about the river. There are several traditional Hindu temples and quaint Nepali villages to explore and the camping on white sandy beaches is better than any campsite you will ever find. Rapid highlights include Harkapur, Rhino Rock, Jungle Corridor and Jaws. Hello, you have reached rafting Nirvana!
