Rafting Tour in Casimiro de Abreu
About this activity
Our Rafting tour in Rio is held in Macaé river, located in Casimiro de Abreu neighborhood, which is about 2 hours from Rio de Janeiro city. The river is 80km long with an 8km rafting. Once in the river, rafting experience can last from 1:30 to 2 hours, according to the water level. Course has about 15 rapids, ranging from 1 to 5 in the summer, 1 to 4 in the spring, 1 to 3 in the fall and 1 to 2 in the winter. Generally, we have a higher water level in the summer, which increases its difficulty and speed. So, in those days, rafting experience is more intense, but with a shorter ride. In the winter, ride may be a bit longer, but the water level decreases and so it does the speed. Average water temperature is around 22° C (70° F) during all year. The scenery along the route is incredible and travelers can testify Atlantic Forest lush vegetation.Read more Show less
