Mighty waters: Maneuvering through powerful rapids

White water rafting is a high-octane outdoor sport that is almost a constant entry to very adventure seeker’s bucket list. It has become the travel enthusiasts’ (like myself) dream to venture into the majestic outdoors by maneuvering through rough rapids amid wildlife. The following are some of the most majestic destinations that my fellow adventure junkies would wish to explore:

Colorado River, Grand Canyon
Boasting 226 miles of winding ride through Utah and Arizona, this spot is close to perfection. The Colorado River area is known for its splendid view of the Grand Canyon and the thrilling experience its rapids offer. In addition, it has various hiking trails, drylands, ancient Indian ruins, and camping sites that are excellent for weekend getaways. 

Zambezi, Zimbabwe
This 15-mile river is home to Africa’s most invigorating white water rafting ride. A playing field for the expert rafters, the excitement runs from the enormous swells and stirring drops as well as the chance to get a close view of various wildlife such as hippopotamuses and crocodiles. 

Río Pacuaré, Costa Rica
This rafting spot provides diverse classes of rapids which cater to both beginners and experienced adventurers. Aside from this 18-mile journey, Costa Rica also offers breathtaking biodiversity hotspots and serene natural environment.

Noce River, Italy
Offering turbulent waters for the more advanced rafters, this 17-mile ride is one of Europe’s most exhilarating white water rafting sites. Furthermore, a fresh perspective of the snow-capped mountains can be viewed from the relatively remote Val di Sole and the narrow gorges of Mostizzolo.
