White water rafting holidays. Tours & holidays in 2016 & 2017

Often associated with the likes of the incredible Grand Canyon, white water rafting holidays take you into some of the world’s most remote spots, surrounded by snow capped peaks. Combine rafting and shoreline camping in the Himalayas, among Mayan ruins that line Guatemalan canyons, Madagascar or Montenegro, or the gushing greats of Croatia or Costa Rica. Few things bring a smile from morning ‘til night more than rafting, rapids and waterside wake ups.

Chitwan safari & rafting in Nepal
It was amazing! It's too difficult to select a single moment or city. Nepali people are really terrific. Exploring Chitwan was incredible. (more)Kacey Orlando
Best bit: Pokhara, seeing the mountains on a clear day and the chance to go paragliding for the first time. (more)Richard Frost
Superb! Nothing like it! (more)Naufier Mohamed
From US $485 excluding flights
Costa Rica multisport holiday
Memorable parts? The time spent in the jungle rafting down the river, staying in jungle lodges and trekking to nearby waterfalls. Tips? Don't book the extra adrenaline pack before you go. It's better to pick and choose your activities when you're there. Local benefits? Local transport was occasionally used and the sharing of rooms reduced the environmental impact Overall rating? Really enjoyable and a good variety of activities. Not too much travelling as well (more)James Mead
From £1099 - £1199 excluding flights
Trekking and rafting expedition in Madagascar
There were too many wonderful experiences to pick out just one as the most memorable or exciting! Some of the many highlights for me included: seeing so many different kinds of lemurs and chameleons; the extraordinary limestone Tsingy...... (more)Catherine Nursaw
Excellent... witnessing the Indri lemurs calling to each other in the trees in front of us and rafting the river rapids were probably my top two memories (more)Kerry Abbiss
Everything, perhaps taking the freight train at 2am alongside mountains of bananas. From the point of landing to our sad farewells it was an unforgettable adventure...Unforgettable. (more)David Phillips
From £1595 excluding flights
Whitewater rafting in Nepal
Tips? Be prepared to get sick. Local benefits? Yes. Overall rating? Very good. (more)Aaron Daubenspeck
From US $22 - US $42 excluding flights
Madagascar rafting expedition
We canoed for two days, negotiated rapids and camped at night on the sandy banks beside the river. The locals were intrigued by these strange foreigners who chose to sleep in tents rather than a hotel but readily came to our rescue when our cooking pots sank to the bottom of the river! (more)Rosemary Llewellin
Most obviously just the many people we met. Everybody says it but it really is true, what a lovely lovely bunch of people to have had the privilege to meet. On the wildlife front, I think the spitting cobra trumped even the komodo dragons! (more)Hayley Fagg
From £2075 excluding flights
