Trip 487: First Rafting Trip in Assi River


Starting to feel hot? Well, start preparing your stuff and join the Footprints Nature Club this Sunday 21 July 2019 in the first

Rafting Trip to Assi River

We will be rafting from the first rafting club on the river, and head towards the magnificent waterfalls of Dardara. We will be passing through two smaller waterfalls on our 7 KMs ride.

The trip shall take around one and a half hours in the river. The ride is of an Easy to Medium level of difficulty where we will have experienced guides in each raft.

Rafting is suitable for everybody. You don’t have to be a swimmer to ride the raft since everybody will be wearing lifejackets and special helmets.

After the ride, we will head back to the club to have lunch on the riverside after changing our clothes in the chalets and changing rooms provided there.

Lunch will be a traditional Lebanese mezza (homos, salad, potato, etc…), a famous Troite fish, and Lahme Mishwiyi and Tawook, with soft drinks.

A minimum of 15 persons is required for the event to take place...
