What would you do if you found yourself getting sick after traveling – after a year of back-to-back trips you become ill with a stomach virus that just doesn’t seem to want to go away. Nothing seems to work; acupuncture, expensive meds and even clinical trials at local hospitals.

Resources. Tips & Tricks:

  • International scale of river difficulty
    Class 6 Rapids (Extreme and Exploratory Rapids) are rarely attempted and often exemplify the extremes of difficulty, unpredictability and danger. The consequences of errors are severe and rescue may be impossible - Wikipedia
    As a result Class 6 Rapids are pretty much illegal world wide.
  • Research the tour organization providing the rafting experience. Look for reviews and compare outfitters.
  • Visit the local tourism bureau/office and mention that you want to go rafting and ask them to recommend a reputable company.
