Chorokh river packrafting

Adventures

Packraft is a light inflatable boat designed for use on any water bodies, including descending  on mountain rivers.

The peculiarity of packraft lies in its lightness and compactness. These boats were specially designed for mixed hiking and water routes. The boat is easy to carry, inflate and deflate. The modern design of the boat makes it universal, which allows anyone without any whitewater experience on mountain rivers to overcome water obstacles up to category 2.

We have single, double and triple boats to choose from (including 2 adults and 1 child). This is the main difference from rafting, where the number of rowers is 6-8 people. On packcraft, you alone (or with a partner) will be able to fully control the rafting process, and you will get much more fun (and adrenaline) than on a large and heavy raft.

The descent is accompanied by a qualified instructor, along safe sections of the river.

We will start from the last dam after Erge village and finish right on the beach at the end of Batumi Boulevard near the airport. An ideal route for the first experience of rafting on mountain rivers and acquaintance with the nature of Adjara.

On this tour you will:

  • get a brief instructions and selection of equipment, change clothes;
  • learn the basics of boat management;
  • experience rapids of 1-2 categories, fascinating water structures, adrenaline and emotions (those who wish can simplify the obstacle along the non-turbulent part of the river near the banks);
  • be impressed with stunning views of the Adjara mountains;
  • enjoy the amazing bird colonies (most likely you have never seen so many seagulls before);
  • see how the big river Chorokhi flows into the Black Sea, panoramas of Batumi from the sea (near the airport);
  • swim among the dolphins, if we’d be lucky;
  • have the opportunity to try driving a polyethylene kayak for extreme rafting at sea near the finish line;

In any of our tours, you will not only raft down the river from start to finish, but you will learn:

  • the basics of water safety
  • basics of behavior in an emergency situation
  • fundamentals of paddling technique
  • types of water structures of mountain rivers
  • get answers to any questions about whitewater

Complementary photos and videos will be provided by our guides.
