Tour Information

Summer Half-Day Rafting

With less water flowing down the Tone River in summer months the rapids mellow out and there is more time to relax and play on the river. Escape the heat and humidity of summer in the refreshing waters flowing down from the towering mountains. Enjoy jumping from the river bank, diving out of the raft and floating in cool pools.
