Rafting in the Cerdanya
Spring is the best time of year to practice rafting, so if you plan to come to the Cerdanya during this season, take good note, because you will enjoy nature in its purest form.
The river flows are full so it is the most exciting moment to enroll on the adventure. Keep in mind that, obviously, water at this time of year is still pretty cold, so those companies that organise this type of activities will provide you with a neoprene that is absolutely necessary to enjoy without shivering. They will also provide you with a life jacket, a perforated and floating helmet and neoprene boots with a rigid sole.
FYI: Boats are made of PVC tarpaulin or Hypalon canvas and their measurements range between 3 and 5 meters.
Rafting is one of the most fun and exciting ways to discover and enjoy the course of a river, as well as being an activity full of the most positive things, so do not hesitate and plan an outing experience, either in a group or family.
Keep in mind that it is very important to inform the organising company of what kind of group you are going to be, since you have to check if the section of the river and the speed of the water are right for your level.
Rafting is certainly fun and very beneficial, in every way:
Teamwork, organisation, communication and leadership. Rafting gives you the possibility to put all that into practice as you will work in a cohesive and very well organised way in order to successfully lower the course of the river. An experienced instructor will accompany you and guide you at all times, but your disposition, your work as a team and your attention and will to have fun will be fundamental.
The rafts usually carry from 6 to 8 crew members, guided by an expert instructor sitted at the rear end of it. Your task will be to reach the end of the trip without overturning or having lost any of the members along the way.
