Thrill-seekers: soak up the adventure during a day in Japan's wild waters. Combine whitewater rafting with a canyoning trip and set out for a day of speed, adrenaline, and wide-eyed excitement.
Your full-day excursion combines the two following half-day trips:
Canyoning:
Zip into your wetsuit, secure your safety gear, and set out for big adventure. A relatively new sport that's quickly gaining in popularity, canyoning combines hiking, rock climbing, repelling, and swimming into one mega-sport that lets you discover a canyon's incredible terrain like never before. Negotiate your way down steep canyons by repelling and jumping over cliffs and waterfalls. Slide down naturally smooth watercourses–just like waterslides–and swim through crystal-clear pools. An international team of highly-skilled and professional guides leads you on a course suited to your ability level. Join in on the excitement of this revitalizing sport that's become a worldwide phenomenon.
Whitewater Rafting:
Hold on tight as you fly over rapids and speed downriver! Get ready to get wet as you shoot down the rapids of Japan's biggest river on a whitewater adventure with roller-coaster thrills.With different river courses available to cater to all ability levels–from nervous beginners to adrenaline junkies–a day of white-knuckle excitement is almost guaranteed.
During the spring melt, the river swells with constant grade-4 rapids for over 7 1/2 miles (12 km) of whitewater-rafting bliss. This same section of river once played host to the rafting world cup qualifying tournament, during which teams came from around the world to prove their mastery, but you'll have a team of highly-skilled guides to help you out. This international team ensures you have a safe, fun, and unforgettable journey down Japan's mighty Tone River.
