Schedule

Meeting at the hotel in Kutaisi at 10:00 and departure to the Racha region.

During the tour you will see  the Nakerala pass with beautiful valley and amazing landscapes, height 1218 m from the sea level.  Also, Shaori lake. Shaori lake is one of the most beautiful water reservoir in Georgia. It locates on 1100 miters altitude. Nature and water is just excellent.

In Ambrolauri city center you can have lunch and taste local “Lobiani” (Not included in the tour price!). In addition you can try local wine Khvanchkara (although doesn’t include in price).

Before the journey, guides will give you all the necessary instructions for the use of equipment and behavior in the boat. And hunting rapids can begin! We board the boat and begin to tame the wild river. The pulse is accelerated to the maximum, adrenalin fills each cell, and laughter and screams bounce off the surrounding rocks. Excitement is growing, while cold water splashes your heated cheeks.

After rafting, it’s time to relax, jump into the water, swim, take pictures. Enjoy the beauty of mountain springs and noisy waterfall of Nikordziri, which is located at the foot of the mystical Khvamli mountain.

Transfer back to the Kutaisi hotel. We will be in Kutaisi about 19:00-20:00. So, you can walk in night Kutaisi or alternatively have a dinner in restaurant in the city center.

As the one-day tour of rafting on the River Rioni takes only a few hours, you can easily combine it with some of our other tours and make your holiday just what you always wanted.

Safety 

Be sure that you will have a carefree experience while in safe hands because our instructors have a wealthy experience with over 100 descents per season, as well as the necessary certificates from the IRF. Since the safety of the participants comes first, we provide you with high-quality equipment from leading brands, which meet the highest international standards and possess international certificates and licenses.

Great time, escape from everyday life, the desire for adventure – whatever you expect from whitewater rafting on the river Rioni, you will get more. For example, did you know that rowing for an hour on the wild waters can burn over 300 calories?
