I went river rafting today for the first time. I was a touch nervous, but not too much, the lifejacket and helmet were all the reassurance I really needed. Turns out the half day ride really isn’t that intense, the rapids went up to class 4 but were mostly around 2. Apparently the full day course is mostly class 4 rapids. Our guide got us to do some fun balance and trust games, and flipped the boat intentionally twice. There was also a big rock most of us dove off of. It was a bit expensive, but the weather was beautiful and the guides were all great and really fun. I definitely plan on going back and doing the full course and maybe the “canyoning” option. The company we went with is http://www.happyraft.com/en/. I recommend it.
