Rafting in Ukraine
Rafting in Ukraine is possible not only on the river called Yuzhnyy Buh but it is the finest in Ukraine due to its availability and beauty of unique National Park Buzhskyy Grad surrounding the river where rafting takes place.
Yuzhnyy Buh Rafting is the most exciting ecological excursion which will remind you about your school scout years. Remember how happy you were eating with your fingers and falling into the water, baking jacket potatoes and singing near the camp fire! Feel young and carefree with our rafting team. The tour is especially recommended to serious business people who have forgotten that they used to be kids. Add up beautiful sights around and you will have the time of your life!
The best way to reach this place is to arrive at Odessa airport and then we can take you to the place of destination by car. If you arrive at Kiev or any other Ukrainian city our driver will be able to pick you up. Our trip will be held in Nikolayev Region, village Grushevka.
Yuzhnyy Buh Rafting is the most exciting ecological excursion in Ukraine.
You will be passing through a number of different channels including "Red Gate" or "Integral" which is considered to be one of the best rafting routes in Europe!
The group can include more than 20 people. The duration of one rafting route is about 2 hours. The current tour includes 2 rafting routes, one per a day.
At additional price (just about 25$ per person) you can order one more rafting route. Attention!!! The group should include 4 people minimum...
The river Yuzhnyy Buh is surrounded by the beautiful National Park Buzhskyy Grad with its canyons, beautiful lakes and trees. Since 2008 the park has been considered to be one of seven natural wonders of Ukraine. The river flows into the Black Sea. It is also useful to know that the water is very warm in summer.
All this might sound too adventurous but the trip is very safe in reality. You will be accompanied by 2 professional rafting instructors, both are Masters in Sport. All equipment is new and of high quality to prevent any traumas during the trip. There are 2 boats available though the more people there are in your group the cheaper your tour is!!! Each boat has a capacity of 10 people...
