Activity description

The Minho River is available all year round for an amazing rafting trip in Portugal. The expert guides will make sure you have a day of soaking-wet fun!

Rafting is a water sport based on the descent of the river on an inflatable raft designed for this purpose. In this whitewater sport, the river is the boss and basically decides your destiny! The river will throw a series of obstacles that, together with your rafting crew and under the guidance of your raft master, you will need to sort. Powerful rapids, whirlwinds, and waves will put you to the test!

To be able to sort the challenges of the river, you'll need to work together with your team. A great form of teamwork, rafting requires you to understand that rhythm, union, sense of leadership, sensorial perception, and even solidarity come into play!

The Minho River is a great combination of white water rapids and great calm stretches which will give you a nice thrill as well a chance to take in all the beauty of the area.
