Every year in springtime the Rafting Centre catches high water of the Svicha and Mizunka rivers. It is usually March when the snow in the Carpathian Horhany melts and fills the Mizunski waterfall with turquoise water. In April the water falls again and the Rafting Centre gets rides on the Chorny Cheremosh river.

The Svicha river usually gives the best rapids from Myslivka (it’s where we usually settle down) to Vyhoda. It’s the spot where we spend the first day getting to work out rafting equipment, meeting peers and instructor teams. We have to get ready to raft on the rough Mizunski waterfall on the second day (difficulty class from 3+ to 4). Beginners are not allowed there due to the high class of difficulty. They have to start with the Svicha river. We recommend using neoprene wetsuits to protect against the cold water.

We usually stay at the hotel “12 Months” in Myslivka. There we cook and have meals. Experience shows Friday is the most convenient time to set off in order to comfortably check in the hotel and have a good sleep.
