The Croatian sailing trips running 24 June - 2 July and 8 - 16 July 2023 from Split, take in the islands of Hvar and Vis, amongst others, and include a side trip for a day of white water rafting in Montenegro on the beautiful Tara River, before ending in historic Dubrovnik. Guests stay onboard a 50-foot yacht, spend their days swimming in pristine bays, trying their hand on the helm, and visiting a selection of Michelin star restaurants. Limited places still available. Cost per person is £3,895/USD5,695.

For those wanting a taste of adventure combined with bucket list experiences, a multi-day rafting trip on the Rio Cotahuasi in Peru with an optional excursion to UNESCO World Heritage site Machu Picchu is available 28 May - 7 June. This is an adventure for experienced rafters looking for the ultimate white-water challenge.

The Cotahuasi was only first rafted in 1994, making it one of the last remaining secrets in the rafting world. A remote river consisting of world-class, non-stop rapids, spectacular campsites and unexplored archaeological ruins all set in a breathtakingly beautiful canyon, declared the “World’s Deepest Canyon”, combine to create a memory-making trip of a lifetime. Costs £5,295/USD6,495 per person.

Head to California, home of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and some of the best rivers in the world. The California Dreamin’ trip takes in five different rivers in a week making the most of the spring run off, as well as a visit to Yosemite National Park plus plenty of small town American hospitality. Fly into San Francisco and explore the city while you’re there. Running 22 - 29 July 2023, £3,250/USD4,595 per person.

Water by Nature has been running white-water rafting trips since 1998 and has pioneered rafting trips in a number of off the beaten track locations like Papua New Guinea and Morocco, as well as renowned rivers like the Zambezi. It has branched into sailing in Croatia, Greece and Sardinia and even canal boat trips in the UK. With a focus on safety but getting back to nature experiences, the company is dedicated to helping clients discover their inner adventurer and lesser explored parts of the world.
