We leave Tirana early in the morning (around 8 a.m) . We drive for about 1,5 hours to the beautiful city of Berat and do a break in hotel Castle Park. Breakfast is provided upon request. After that we depart straight to the Osumi Canyons (about 1,5 hours drive). We arrive in the rafting site and start to get changed and dress the rafting equipment (neoprene suit, jacket, helmet) and go with the minibus to the edge of the Osumi river.

We start the downriver and enjoy  the adrenaline, fun and joy that provide the team sport rafting in the marvellous Osumi Canyons.
