Full description
The East Glacial river has a reputation of being one of the most exciting rivers in Europe.  The trip begins at a boathouse where your friendly and professional guide will provide you with all of the equipment and information needed for tackling the famous glacial rivers. Wetsuits, dry tops, helmets, buoyancy aids /life jackets, and rafting booties are provided. All you need to bring is your swimsuit, a warm sweater or fleece, and a towel. Once you are all changed you will be driven to the East valley. Your trip leader will give a safety briefing with all of the safety information needed to get the most out of your trip. Take to the river rafting 16 km through the East Glacial canyon. Tackle rapids such as Alarm Clock, Commitment, Screaming Lady, and of course the famous Green Room. Depending on the water levels you will also stop for some cliff jumping for those that feel they need a little more excitement.The bus will meet you at the end where steaming bowls of hot soup will be waiting for. After a short 20 minute ride back to the base you can unwind in a hot tub.
