Rafting season has started in national park Slovenský Raj (Slovak Paradise). Prielom Hornádu, a famous spot for tourists within the park, is an especially spectacular place to go rafting.
Rafting in the national park has only been permitted since 2016.
The rafting begins in Hrabušické mýto and ends in Čingov. Visitors can also raft around the popular footboards at the bottom of the canyon.
“The view on the whiteness of limestone or greenness of forests is different from the river,” Tomáš Dražil, the director of the national park Slovenský Raj, told The Slovak Spectator.
Rafting in the national park is strictly regulated. The number of rafts is limited to 70 per day and the level of the surface should be at least 70 centimetres high. Dražil recommends registering on Slovenský Raj's website and paying close attention to meteorological conditions.
There is also a toilet and changing rooms at the Hrabušické mýto information point.
It is possible to raft in the river only from May 1 until October 31. The route is 11.75 kilometres long.
