What a rush but I'm getting ahead of myself. Money money money. For the white water rafting with a collection from your hotel or villa will cost you 25 euros but if you're driving there, it will only cost you 17 euros. Either price includes the rafting, which lasts over 20 minutes but feels like 25 minutes or more. You also have a simple lunch provided after you arrive back at the Novacraft base. Be warned that drinks are not included, so I would suggest walking with your own, if you do not feel like paying extra.

You can pay for photos and video from the days rafting, which may be worth a look. I'm regretting not paying for those from our visit, so consider purchasing them yourself. It is definitely an enjoyable experience and you will definitely get wet. We visited during October, so the water was bleeding cold. So if you own a shorty (small scuba diving wet suit), it might be worth wearing, as it will keep your body tempreture up, as you will exit the raft a few times as you make your way down the river.

The leader of the individual rafts are really good and some are more comical than others but you'll surely have a laugh from them alone. Prepare yourself for some water fights as even though most of the visitors are adults, you cannot mix water, adults, paddles and not expect them to not spray water at each other. Have at ya!!!

Before you make it back to base, there is a stop for refreshments (corn on the cob, drinks, crisps and what not) but they are a bit pricey, so you could easily wait a bit longer for the provided lunch. Not only will you have one heck of a ride but the views are beautiful in themselves, so give it a go.

Great day out. The rafts are actually inflatables so very safe and unlikely to capsize, however you will get wet! There were four rafts in our group and the guides encouraged each raft to splash any other raft that came close, which all added to the fun. There were also a couple of opportunities to drop over the side for a safe swim which was lovely.

The river rapids themselves were great fun - it's not all rapids obviously as there are calm stretches between them.

Lunch was good (included in the price).

Definitely recommend this, regardless of whether you've done it before

We stayed overnight in Koprulu Canyon and joined first day off-road trip and other day river rafting. We had a blast. The team is very friendly and helpful. Will be back next year.

Family holiday in Lara Beach - Booked Novaraft prior to travelling (about £70) including a nice chicken or fish lunch with rice and vegetables and transfers from Sherwood Exclusive Lara. Transfer approx. 1 hour, collected at 0845 and returned at 4.30pm. Wear swimsuit shorts and water shoes or sandals (flip flops not allowed). Arrived for briefing then taken by mini bus to starting point (bags left on bus). Put into teams, our raft had six adults and three children plus the Captain Salhad who was really funny and made the experience so much fun for us. This is not white knuckle rafting but nevertheless a great family day out! Water freezing and a few stops to swim if you are brave enough. Water fights with other rafts was amusing. Stopped off half way through for sweetcorn cob and snacks/drinks (payable on return to base camp). During the rafting we stopped and did some games ie. spinning the boat to see if the kids could stay on the ends of the raft without falling into water. Whole day was great fun. On return to base camp we had a nice lunch and looked at video and photo's taken during the rafting tour which we could purchase. We purchased three photo's for 9 euro's so not expensive. Drinks were a little expensive. Cannot stress enough what a fabulous day out this is for all ages. Salhad made out trip extra special and was such great fun. We also left our beach bag there with the camera in which they returned to our hotel the next day so many thanks - Great company 5*!!!

If you want a great adventure just have rafting with Novaraft! It was one of the most exciting moments of our holiday. Novaraft is a great choice with its high quality for that. Rafting captains are very successful. They welcome, inform and direct the guests very well. And rafting on Köprülü Kanyon is unforgettable. Thanks to Novaraft for this great experience
