Turkey: White Water Rafting

Bridging the East and West

Turkey has some excellent rivers for white water rafting. The two popular rivers for white water rafting in Turkey are Koprucay near Antalya and the Coruh River near Erzurum. The Koprucay follows a 120km route through the 2500m high Bozburun Mountains. The rafting route is rated Class 1 and 2, ideal for beginners. The Coruh River on the other hand, has all the action and drama with Class 3, 4, 5 and 6 rapids and should only be attempted by professionals.
