Rafting - Rafting Al Assi - Hermel District

  • This time it will be a one day trip to Assi River for rafting. The drive is quite long, but it’s worth every minute of it!
    We will stop on our way to visit Mar Maroun Cave, the source of Assi River and the Ammoua in Hermel.

    Once you get to Assi, a short presentation on the basics of rafting will be presented. You will be given the necessary equipment (helmet, oars, life jacket). Each raft will carry around 6 to 8 passengers accompanied by a professional coach. Then off you go to experience a wild adventure in the river! The ride is long; you will follow the white stream and cross three or more waterfalls that will pump high your adrenaline! You will surely get wet so leave your phone and camera on land.
    After this ride, you will rest and have lunch (trout and regional specialties).

    NOTE: This rafting club in Assi is our co-partner. Many of you will probably enjoy doing many rafting trips during summer. Just contact Vamos Todos to get your tickets, and you can raft any time you wish.
