Big waves, exhilaration, fresh air and beautiful surroundings - this is Turkey for the adventurer. Far away from the pub crawls and union jack shorts, this is the ultimate in excitement. The Coruh River is set in the rugged northeast corner of Turkey, draining the area south of the Black Sea. With an almost endless stream of Class III/IV rapids it rushes north along the valley with a spectacular array of beautiful shimmering gorges, ancient ruins and castles perched high up on the cliff tops. The water is big and plentiful in high flow, testing your teamwork but giving maximum reward in one of the best adventures you will ever have. This is definitely one of our favourite whitewater rafting expeditions!   Big action on the Coruh!

Day One
Arrive in Erzurum airport and transfer by private bus to Maden. The views are outstanding as we drive deep into the Kackar Mountain Range. We camp on the banks of the Coruh River.
(Lunch and dinner included)

Day Two
After a healthy breakfast of local produce we begin a full safety briefing followed by our first exhilarating paddle on the Coruh.
(All meals included)

Day Three
Today we’re off on a mission. We encounter the Bitch, Alexis, Dynasty and the Stud after a relatively short introduction. With Mile Long Rapid coming next we are bounced down the river in style with a multitude of towering waves! This will certainly set the tone for the rest of the trip. The day ends on a high with a refreshing beer around the campfire.
(All meals included)

Day Four
We set off down the river to Tekkale, stopping at villages along the way and trekking up to the Byzantine castles to admire the most fantastic views. In the evening we sample the hospitality of the ex-mayor of Tekkale with music and drinks. Very nice!
(All meals included)

Day Five
A real gem of a river today - the Barhal. We drive up to the put-in and then paddle back to camp, stopping beneath a hotel in Yusufeli to climb up for an ice cold drink. Free time available in the afternoon and a relaxing night at camp.
(Breakfast and dinner included)

Day Six
Massive section of river today as we pass the confluence with the Barhal. Plunging through huge rapids down the Yusufeli Gorge to our take-out, this truly is a big day paddling! The drive back takes us via the Tortem Gorges with an impressive selection of twisted rocks and turquoise lakes. Great photo opportunities. Final group meal in the delightful Erzurum.
(Breakfast and lunch included)

Day Seven
After breakfast at the hotel, we transfer to the airport for the flight home. If you have opted to join the Trekking Expedition into the spectacular Kackar Mountains you will be collected by our guides, and off on another brilliant adventure!
(Breakfast included)
