Information about risks:
Rafting is an adventure sport and involves risks on part of the participant. It entails known and unanticipated risks that could result in physical or emotional injury, death, damage to property, or damage to third parties. Although precautions are being taken by the company providing the service, we cannot be responsible for the involved risks and personal injuries. One is responsible for its own safety during the participation in rafting activities. Failing to properly use and wear safety equipment increases the risk of injury or of not surviving an accident. Weather conditions and changing water levels have an influence on the degree of the risk of injury. Also, the risk of injury increases and rescuing is more difficult the higher the grade of the rafting classification. It is very important to examine if your health / travel insurance will cover rafting activities and if so, which of the different river categories are covered.
