1- Rafting an extreme entertainment
All the videos and photos of rafting are most viral, but they only perpetuate the myth. Believe it, not all rafting trips are extreme, in fact, most people find this to be very fun. Just like caffeinated drinks, they will motivate all of your senses, but there is a wide variety. The different packages and programs help you to find your favorite and enjoy it. Anyway, know that rafting is very popular among "Bucket-Listers" and active "children" between 40 and 70 years old. If you don't know what a "bucket list" is, then you're too young to get it.
2- We have to spend the whole day on a raft
In fact, on a rafting trip, you have different programs out of than raft. especially in Iran, you can visit the historical, and cultural sites with a deep history. One day it may be catching a short hike to Helen's protected area at Chahar Mahal & Bakhtiari area or companionship with nomads or jumping into a waterfall hole, or climbing for an hour to a picturesque vista you couldn’t possibly contain in a photo.
3- Just canned food or a fun picnic
Food is the simplest way to learn about other cultures.
Food and related cultures represent an important part of Iranian culture. Thus, a picnic with a variety of Iranian dishes can make you more interested in their culture.
4-Do you like new life-style
During your trip, you can get acquainted with different nomads of the region and experience a new lifestyle. If you are not interested in luxury and super luxury hotels, we offer you, nomadic tents. In these traditional tents, you can spend the night with millions of stars or the Milky Way and wake up, when the first rays of the sun pour on you. A natural breakfast and Delicious local with mouth-watering meals will also give you extra energy.
5- There are no bathroom facilities on rafting trips
This is serious business. Rest assured, the thousands of guests we welcome to the river each year do very well with the privacy and accessibility of the two systems we offer. All the rooms are equipped with private baths and toilets.
6- I must be a good swimmer
Swimming is for the World Game or the pools. The first plan is always to stay on the boat, but if you find yourself having an off the boat experience during rafting, the correct technique is more like orchestrated float than swimming. The orchestrated part will be explained by your guides when you get to the river, while the floating part is much easier than you might think. After all, you will literally be wearing a well-fastened personal flotation device at all times on the river, in case you have a personal flotation experience. Experiences of involuntary personal float are not very common, but if they do, you will need to feel comfortable making active strokes in the water to propel yourself to a safer place (i.e. towards the boat or shore). Either way, you won't have to worry if you will sink or float if you wear your PFD correctly.
7-The quality of the trip depends on guides
The quality of your trip will increase with guides that specifically selected for such programs. Our guides know how to tell a joke, tie a knot, cook a meal, lead a talent night competition, and talk about Iran's deep history. In fact, our guides will have had over 100 hours of training before guiding their first guest down the river.
8- I should be athletic
Athletic people may have more advantages when compared to, let’s say, lazy people. But if you can walk, run, step over stuff, grip a rope occasionally do a slow-motion butt slide, and carry your oars, then you’re great and golden. We often tease that the only true requirement of a river trip is being able to get in and out of the raft!
However, these activities are not performed on a daily basis, but they don’t require athleticism, or even grace – especially on a rafting trip. Yes, we do have optional short hikes. but they lead to majestic waterfalls and picturesque plains, so you won’t want to miss them!
9- I will miss my electronic devices
An ad for a Seychelles hotel was written, "We don't have radio, television, satellite, internet or computers, we just have comfort and entertainment." but, We have all of them simultaneously. We know you do important things in our day-to-day lives, and we rely on little rechargeable devices to get those important things done. It can be hard to imagine leaving all that important stuff behind. So, don't forget them, because you would have an exciting journey with your electronic devices.
10- Rafting is the same no matter where you go
Going whitewater rafting before you kick that proverbial bucket might satisfy bragging rights, but if you think it's the same no matter where you go, or that going just once will be enough, then you're losing the boat, or boats, for so to speak. . Every river trip is unique, even if you run the same run every time. There is hardly any way to see everything the western canyons have to offer in one run! You may think you've seen what there was to see, but then a second trip reveals new side canyon gems that you never knew were there on the first trip. When you start exploring the different rivers, not only do you find obvious differences in the landscapes and vegetation, but you see that each river has its own personality and temperament.
