Unleash your adventurous spirit with our exclusive Rioni River rafting tour. Glide through the vibrant landscapes of Imereti and delve into the untouched natural wonders of Racha. As you navigate the rushing waters, you'll be surrounded by Georgia's pristine forests and mountain vistas, showcasing the region's breathtaking beauty. This private tour not only promises a thrilling ride but also serves as a gateway to bonding with nature, supported by some of the best guides in the region. Dive into an adventure tailored just for you, whether you're in search of a pulse-racing experience or a serene journey under Georgia’s expansive skies.



After meeting your guide at your hotel, a scenic drive through the picturesque landscapes of Imereti takes you to Ambrolauri. Here, set in the heart of Racha region, begins your adventure. Your guide, equipped with extensive local knowledge and rafting expertise, will ensure you’re fully prepped with the necessary equipment—a paddle, helmet, life jacket, and wetsuit—all before you even touch the water.

As the boat slips into the Rioni, your guide leads you through the initial calm waters, setting the pace for what becomes a heart-thumping journey downstream. The river, fueled by the spring's snowmelt, offers a vibrant and dynamic course. In spring, experience the exhilarating 26-kilometer (16-mile) route where rapid waters challenge your skills. As summer progresses and the waters mellow, the route shortens to 20 kilometers (12.4 miles), welcoming even young adventurers over 12 years old with a softer, yet still captivating experience.

Throughout the trip, laughter and shouts of joy echo against the backdrop of lush greenery as your raft bounces along the spirited currents. Splashes of cold water contrast with the warmth of the sun, marking moments of pure joy and exhilaration.

As the rafting winds down, the experience doesn't end. Back at camp, settle in for a hearty meal of local barbecue and dishes, reflecting on the day’s journey with your group. For those who wish, an overnight stay in tents along the riverbank offers a serene ending to an unforgettable day of adventure.

Cap your experience with a tranquil drive back to Kutaisi, carrying with you not just memories but a newfound appreciation for Georgia’s wild landscapes and spirited rivers.
