The Vjosa River is one of the last wild rivers in Europe. It enters Albania at the “Tre Urat” border and crosses into the Municipality of Përmet and Këlcyra as it joins the Zagori and Drino River, where it also flows into the Municipality of Tepelena and continues its journey to the estuary of the Adriatic Sea. This portion of the river offers excellent opportunities for rafting and other water sports. The Vjosa river valley is characterized by numerous natural features such as swirling streams, canyons, freshwater springs, islands, and curves that create magnificent meanders, singular panoramic landscapes, characteristic villages, etc. All of these unique attractions blend in harmony with each other and place tourists in direct contact with the untouched nature of the valley, its people, history, traditions and, without a doubt, the rich and varied cuisine of the area.
Rafting trips are offered to all enthusiastic travelers who like wildlife and adventure, adrenaline and outdoor sports.
