Andes' Adventure: Rafting Fever

Andes' Adventure: Rafting Fever

As this program begins we see there are many outdoor activities to enjoy in Venezuela, including paragliding, canyoning, mountain biking and bridge jumping. But one of the most amazing and thrilling experiences has to be rafting the rivers coming down from the Andes to the floodable plains of the Orinoco. This eco adventure takes place on the Sinig├╝is River guided by the most experienced operator in the area. First we see the rafters train with instructors from New Zealand; then a rehearsal run in the Acequias River. Next is the trip upstream with the boat to the launching site, the preparation with the gear; then the moment of truth. Rapid after rapid shows that rafting can be the experience of a lifetime. Here we see the landscape, the archaeological sites, the people, the camp, the emotion and discover the meaning of rafting fever. 05/10DE JSCA 30 min.
