Exploratory Rafting To Georgia And Tatshenshini

5th January 2012

We all love to go to new places. Exploring a new river for the first time is both exhilerating and challenging. This is not only for the guide team, but also the clients who come on the trip. 2012 sees 2 new destinations featuring two of the best rafting trips we have ever offered.

The Rioni River, Georgia:
The Rioni river is very similar to the Coruh in Turkey, so for anyone that didn’t make it to Turkey before the completion of the dams or if you’ve already been on a trip to Turkey and fancy exploring more of the area then this is the trip for you! Georgia is little known as a tourist destination, but stuffed full of history and beautiful countryside as well as being home to some great whitewater so we’re very excited to get out there next summer! Trips depart from Batumi in Georgia. Come and experience the Caucasus Mountains in the heart of this fascinating country.

Fascinating history right on the riverbank

The Tatshenshini River, Canada:
The Tatshenshini trip takes you to the edge of the Arctic Circle, along the border between the Alaska and Canada. It’s a trip that give you the opportunity for some incredible wildlife spotting, including Bald Eagles and Grizzly Bears. We’ll float past vast blue glaciers, underneath the incredible towering peaks of the Alsek range and hike above the river to get the best views of this wilderness on this amazing northerly trip. The Tatshenshini is a 2 week trip that takes you away from it all, relaxing as well as stimulating all the senses, this incredible trip is going to be unmissable!

Around every corner is yet another amazing view

Hamish and the team of guides look forward to sharing these trips with you in 2012.
