The Coruh River offers world class rafting, and a taste of the real Turkey beyond the tourist resorts. For adrenaline addicts the highest water levels are in May and early June; if you are looking for a more relaxing trip come in late June or July. Previous rafting experience is useful but not essential; you just need to be reasonably fit, able to swim, and used to the outdoor life. Spectacular canyons, fertile valleys, ancient ruined castles and churches, rugged mountains, and friendly, hospitable local people.
