Rafting is a sport activity that consists in the descending of fast rivers in inflatable boats called Rafts.

The Paiva River is considered the best river in Portugal for Rafting. Considered in 2006 the river with the cleanest waters of Europe, reserves a very direct contact with nature and allows to feel the strength of the brave waters, especially when its flow is high.

Depending on its flow, it promises great adrenaline even for those who habitually practice this sport. Since it is a river that is fed mainly by the rains, the descents in the river Paiva are made (usually) from October to April.
