Resources. Tips & Tricks:
- International scale of river difficulty
Class 6 Rapids (Extreme and Exploratory Rapids) are rarely attempted and often exemplify the extremes of difficulty, unpredictability and danger. The consequences of errors are severe and rescue may be impossible – Wikipedia
As a result Class 6 Rapids are pretty much illegal world wide.
- Research the tour organization providing the rafting experience. Look for reviews and compare outfitters.
- Visit the local tourism bureau/office and mention that you want to go rafting and ask them to recommend a reputable company.
