Location/Region highlights

Rafting on the Vjosa River, one of Europe’s last free-flowing rivers, is a class III rafting. Prepare for waves up to four feet and narrow passages that send the boat shimmying and water gushing over the sides. Vjosa river’s entire 270km course is wild and untamed and adorned with beautiful canyons, braided river sections, islands, and oxbows.
