Different types of raft depending on your preferences:
Standard raft (from age 7 upwards): maximum 8 people per raft, guide present aboard the raft; from gentle descents to thrilling rides for adrenalin-seekers (just let the guide know what you want!)
Mini-raft (from age 12 upwards): maximum 4 people, with a guide either on board with you or close by in a separate raft; recommended for motivated sports enthusiasts with some whitewater experience.
Cano-raft (from age 10 upwards): maximum 2 people per raft; after a pre-departure briefing, the guide stays close by on a separate raft to give you advice on your direction and technique!
