Short courses are also held (briefings of 15 minutes) during which useful notions and instructions are given, also for security purposes.
Are these activities suitable for children?
Of course! Rafting is an activity suitable for children too(4 years onwards). Everyone can go rafting in the Thames, even the little ones: obviously, the sections are not as troubled as those for adults. Having said that, the descent remains a very unique and safe experience.
