    If the best for of summer relaxation for you is a good rafting trip on some of the most dangerous and wild rivers on the planet, here are some destinations that you might find interesting – the best rafting destinations in the world.

    Zambezi River, Zimbabwe

    Given that Victoria Falls is the biggest and most powerful waterfall in the world, you can imagine that the Zambezi River is no mere creek. Zambezi will fulfill your desire for brutal splashing waves, and lots of unpredictable turns. Rafting on the Zambezi River is extremely difficult and not fit for beginners, especially the Batoka rapids with their steep gradients and big drops.

    Colorado River

    The great advantage of Colorado River is that is has something for every age and every level of skill. There are several stretches where you can have a nice, picturesque float with your family, but there are plenty of class 5 difficulty rapids where even the most hardened adrenaline junkie can get his or her fix.

    Bhote Koshi River, Nepal

    Bhote Koshi River in Nepal has the perfect recipe for an action packed rafting trip. A rafting trip through the scenic valley of the Bhote Koshi sounds great, the only problem is that you won’t have much time to actually admire the scenery.

    A rafting trip on this river is not very long, but it’s guaranteed to be very intense, as Bhote Koshi is one of the steepest rivers in Nepal and has almost continuous rapids.

    Futaleufu River, Chile

    Rafting on Futaleufu River isĀ  milder and more accessible than in other destinations on the this list, but that doesn’t mean that it lacks excitement. The rapids on this river are class 2, so it is perfect for families and newbie rafters. You will have the chance to admire the spectacular scenery while rafting, which is always a plus.

    Yangtze River, China

    The Great Bend on the Yangtze River is one of the best rafting destinations in China, because they offer plenty of exciting rapids, but the scenery is also breath-taking (if you can focus your attention on it).

    The canyons of the Yangtze River are on par with the Grand Canyon, and the flow of the water is quite powerful.
