Adventurous rafting on Arda river, Bulgaria

An adventure filled with a lot of emotions and energy!

The rafting is organized at the upper part of Arda river, in the area between the hydro-power plant cascade “Bial izvor” and Kardzhali dam. In this region the river is flowing through a unique valley which is almost impossible to be passed without kayak or raft.

The river itself is the longest in Rhodope Mountains and famous with its beautiful meanders, great spot for rafting in Bulgaria in spring time.

During the rafting you will enjoy:

  • the fantastic surrounding atmosphere of the Arda defile
  • the emotions from the white waters
  • the warmth and the atmosphere of the campfire

Our route is Class 3, according to the international scale of river difficulty. There is an option for easier route Class 2, which could be done depending on the water level or upon request. The safety of all participants is most important for us while choosing the route.


270 BGN per person (the price is for group of minimum 4 people)

The price includes:

  • full rafting equipment for the trip: rafting boats, paddles, life jackets, neoprene, jackets, helmets, water boots, waterproof bags for the luggage. We will provide you equipment with the needed size.

  • transport during the whole trip

The best time for rafting on Arda River is early spring. In that period the water is stronger and with the needed level for our adventure.
