You do not have a chance to go rafting in any river  because of the river grades mentioned before.


For example, in view of flowing  the Coruh River is the world's  second toughest river and going for rafting in this river can only be done by experienced and expert rafters.  However  there is some parts  in the river where the flow and difficulties are quiet suitable for the beginners as well.
