Alanya Rafting General Information
Alanya Rafting tours take place in a picturesque location on the Koprucay River in Koprulu Canyon National Park. The river is conditionally divided into three parts by level of difficulty: for beginners, medium and high level, respectively. Group and family rafting tours take place on the first two parts of the route. The length of the route is about 14 km. For the third part of the route, only groups and participants with the certificate of the International Rafting Federation are allowed.
River rafting is carried out in groups on special inflatable boats (rafts) consisting of from 2 to 10 people. An experienced instructor guide accompanies each group. In addition to the equipment (helmet, paddle and life jacket) before the rafting, each participant receives a small briefing on safety measures and the basic commands used in rowing.
