6 Reasons You Should Go Whitewater Rafting

(Last Updated On: December 12, 2017)

Going whitewater rafting was probably one of the most adventurous thing that I have tried, if you consider the fact that I cannot swim. This was one of those decisions you make without thinking too much and I have to say I had a blast. I fell twice in the river and I was not even scared at all, well maybe a little.

After couple of days in Madrid I went to visit my friend in Vigo for the Easter Holiday. So, we went rafting in Pontevedera, Galicia and the experience was unforgettable. So I am going to try to convince you to try it out if you have not already.

Why whitewater rafting is good for you?

Adventure – We all need adventure in our lives. Going on holiday should not only be sunbathing and relaxing. We should step out of our comfort zone and try something new. Whitewater rafting is the perfect adventurous and thrilling experience that will make you feel alive.

Nature abounds – going down the river will allow you some unique views which you cannot reach otherwise.

Exercise – Whitewater rafting is the best way to get exercise while you are having fun. You will get your Vitamin D for the day and spend time with your friends. Getting outside is an activity that we all like but unfortunately our busy schedule does not allow us to do so as much as we want.

Awesome guided tour – We had a guide that was with us during the whole time. She gave us instructions what we should do in case we fall and was switching us during the whole time, and for the biggest part I was in the first row which was magnificent.

Unique Experience – Whitewater rafting is not available everywhere. So, if you have a chance to go rafting then you definitely should, because indeed it is an unique experience.

Face your Fears – This does not apply to everyone, but it did for me. For some reason I am quite scared of the water, that is the reason I never learnt how to swim. But, during the whole time I had so much fun and I enjoyed the ride.
