Feel the adrenalin surging through your body; be in awe of the rugged mountain scenery surrounding you and feel your confidence and excitement grow as the rapids get progressively more exciting as the full volume of water squeezes through the narrow gorge.  If you feel apprehensive, you can walk round the grade 5 rapids with our photographer and then rejoin the rafts for more fun surfing the calmer waters.
