Your crafts will steadily pick up speed and you'll have races with the other rafts out on the river, all the while splashing and getting splashed, even going over a few small drops! After a while, you will take a small break in order to have a snack (make sure that you confirm any dietary requirements in advance) - usually a traditional bocadillo and a cold drink.
After this you'll resume, continuing downriver, you will have the opportunity to go in the water for a swim if you so wish, aided by your life jacket so you're in no danger. If you're lucky, you might see some otters or some river birds here. After a while, it's all aboard, back into the rafts getting ready for the weir.** The weir is a drop in water level which changes height depending on river flow and the season, but it's usually a couple of meters high. You'll quite drenched here!
*Please note* On occasions, the water level around the weir is too high or too low, in these occasions, we aren't allowed to go over it.
After that, it's the end of the adventure as we're in Blanca, the final stop. Back aboard the mini-bus (Unfortunately, there are no changing facilities at the end point, so please don't forget your towel) heading back to La Mariposa. Once there you can get changed in our changing facilities and enjoy your lunch on the terrace (and a G&T!)
