Things to Do During Rafting Tour

Dear Rafting lovers, as Antalya Adventures team, we recommend that the tour should be done by experts who are experts in their field,

know the river and the region well, and have experience and equipment in first aid. Before and after getting on the rafting boats, you should listen carefully to what your guide says and do not act otherwise. Always wear your life jacket on the river. The life jacket should fit comfortably. Always consult your guide before taking off your life jacket.

Koprulu Canyon Rafting Rules List;

  • Do not tie or wrap any rope around your wrist, arm, leg or neck. This can be dangerous as a result of a fall.
  • Do not put your feet outside the safety line while paddling. You are likely to be damaged if you hit a rock.
  • Do not jump until you have permission from your river guide.
  • If someone falls off the boat, pull them back into the boat only from the top (shoulder section) of the lifejacket.
  • Knowing how to swim does not mean that you do not need a lifejacket, helmet and other equipment.
  • It is important to move together with the team during the designated course.
  • To prevent possible accidents, it is important that the boats complete the tour without tipping over.
  • During the rafting tour, you should never panic when you fall as a result of the eddying reverse currents formed by the rocks in front of the waterfall or hitting the rocks, you should extend your feet in the direction of the current and you should not try to stand up while you are in the waterfall.
  • During the fall, it is necessary not to hold the group mate next to you but to try to hold the rope of the boat.
  • While you are in the rafting boat, there may be long sharp tree branches on the river bank, your guide will help you overcome such obstacles by giving commands that you need to duck or row.

As you can see, rafting is a team work and a team sport. It is important for both your life safety and the life safety of your friends that you do not go beyond the rules explained to you. You can watch training videos on the subject under the training videos heading on our website.

The Importance of Participating in Adventure Activities


1. You improve your physical health when you get dirty. Scientists have recently said that our modern obsession with cleanliness can lead to allergies, asthma and inflammatory bowel disease. Getting dirty can be the best way to develop a strong immune system. Going on adventures means getting dirty and being healthy.

2. Outdoor activities can prevent or treat a wide range of health problems. Adventure journeys and breathing nature's oxygen are among the prescriptions recommended by doctors across the country for many ailments, from heart diseases to obesity and attention deficit disorder.

3. Adventure has no age. Everyone can turn nature into a playground. Adventure tours journey is just one part of it, it is an activity you can do throughout your life. The important thing is that you can overcome the challenges, big and small that come your way.

4. Go for a walk, get a bigger brain. Research shows that walking or hiking trains the brain. Normally when you reach middle age, your hippocampus shrinks, leading to memory loss. But a group of middle-aged adults who walked 40 minutes at a time, three times a week for a year, found their hippocampus increased by an average of 2 percent; This may increase retention rates in future years. Hiking adventures keep you mentally sharp.

5. Going on an adventure increases tolerance for uncertainty. You can learn to cope with life's uncertainties if you expose yourself to situations that don't always go as planned, such as adventure travel.

6. Adventure travel allows you to safely try out alternative lives. The best part about starting an adventure is to pretend you're doing everything you want it to be before you take a big, permanent step. You can ask yourself the question, who would you be if you lived there?

7. Going on adventures often improves thinking, which is a mental ability. Adventures give us beautiful memories that bring our minds to the forefront to remember. This means that our journey was simply "marinated"; It's an especially valuable exercise these days, when so much of what we do seems to fly by and go on forever without any real meaning. But reliving our adventures over and over gives us the time and ability to learn from them.

8. Adventure travel nourishes dreams and builds confidence. The editor of National Geographic Traveler Magazine once suggested that the Travel Cycle goes like this: Dream, plan, go, share. However, no matter how many steps are taken there, there is one thing that is certain about going to the magnificent points of nature: it becomes addictive in a short time. One wilderness does not seem to be enough; Your soul quickly craves more. And you will find yourself changing every time you go. Adventures build confidence, and with each successive event you challenge yourself a little more. I will add a fifth step to the Travel Cycle: Dream bigger.

9. Adventure experiences cure social ills. Today, we are faced with a situation that some in Turkey describe as an epidemic. The adventurous childhood has been lost in the new generation. When parents spend too much time with their children and insist on attending their every activity, they kill the child's desire to explore. And unfortunately, they constantly extinguish the spark within them. No matter what, don't kill your child's spirit of adventure for the sake of being a better parent.

10. Adventure explorers may be more important than ever in saving the world; Some scientists say it will become impossible to reverse global warming, which will accelerate climate change. If they are right, only selected groups from the public can become adventure travelers.
