Adventure Tours: Franklin rafting

Shared by |tags, , ,

A US-based travel magazine has named World Expeditions’ Franklin River Trip as the world’s best white water rafting destination.

‘Outside’, which is described as America’s leading active-lifestyle and adventure travel magazine, said the river’s pristine ecosystem was one of the reasons for choosing the outdoor location.

However, it was also to do with the thrill so-called adrenaline junkies get when they set off on a journey down the Franklin’s notorious rapids.

Once famously described as a mix of canyons and waterfalls, it is easy to see why so many tourists with a passion for adventure make the yearly pilgrimage to this part of the world.

But it is not just the river that keeps them coming back. Instead, it is a combination of clear waters, an isolated wilderness and native animals – including sea eagles and platypuses – that help to reinvigorate weary travellers.

It is also possible to pass nine days without seeing anyone else on an expedition, which helps to add to the feeling of being one with nature that so many people crave.

If you are keen to raft your way in Tasmania, you will want to make a booking for the next World Expeditions tour.
