The Vjosa River is one of the last wild rivers in Europe. It enters Albanian territory at the Tre Urat border point and traverses the south of Albania for 192 km until it flows into the Adriatic Sea. This section of the river offers excellent opportunities for rafting and other water sports activities. The Vjosa Valley is characterized by numerous natural features such as rapid flows, canyons, water springs, islands, and turns that create marvelous meanders, offering unique panoramic landscapes, characteristic villages, and more. All these features harmoniously intertwine, placing tourists in direct contact with the untouched nature of the valley, with the people, history, traditions, and undoubtedly with the rich and diverse cuisine of the area.

The rafting tour is offered to all those passionate about wild nature and who enjoy adventure, adrenaline, and outdoor sports.
