There is a misconception that Rafting is a risky sport in which strong emotions and the adrenaline of risk prevail over safety and control. These prejudices about Rafting are held by people who generally have not had much contact with this sport, so in this article we will talk about what aspects we should assess before rafting as a family.
The reality of Rafting and the benefits of enjoying it with the family
Before commenting on the level of danger of an activity such as Rafting, we must point out several things.
The route we take and how we take it are key aspects to measure this level of danger or safety that we were talking about.
There are perfect rivers for water activities such as rafting, canoeing, hydrospeed, etc. with children 6 years of age and older, in which the risk is practically nil, as is the case with the Noguera Pallaresa river , where the aquatic adventure sports that we offer at Hotel Les Brases are practiced, a river considered by experts in the field as one of the safest in all of Spain.
There are also very complex whitewater rivers, in other parts of Spain and in other countries, whose routes can only be carried out by authentic experts.
The difficulty level of these rafting tours are often measured from level 1 (calmest and easiest rivers) to level 6 (most difficult rivers).
The outdoor activity companies with which we have collaboration agreements at Hotel Les Brases are run by professional teams with extensive experience who work with families all year round. For this reason, we fully trust their recommendations and the testimonials of parents and children who do adventure activities with them are very positive.
Family rafting is a unique experience
Parents have a great time and feel safe with all the protection measures that are taken before going to the river and all the indications that are taught before doing the activity, and the children live a unique and unforgettable experience as a family.
The most common fears that parents usually have are about the stability of the boat... "Can it capsize?", "Can it sink?"... Definitely this is almost impossible in rivers where rafting is done with families and children. , since its current is not strong enough. In addition, the instructors take the same route hundreds of times and know what to do at each point of the river. They are fears that are based on ignorance of the place and the activity, and not on actual experience.
These types of activities are a unique opportunity to enjoy nature , create future family memories and unite all family members. In rafting, the participation of all the members of the group is necessary to guide and move the boat, for this reason great bonds of union are achieved between the participants and it fosters friendship and teamwork.
