Rafting! In the Sorachi River - Clearest water one can expect! -
Not only enjoy the rafting but also enjoy the nature of beauty in Furano.
You will cross the rough wave in cooperation with your group!

Enjoy a 7-km adventure on a large size inflatable raft boat! In this tour you'll go down the stream of clear water that flows through Furano area. It's a 7-km cruise in a strong raft boat on the upstream part of the Sorachi River. The river water is just CLEAR!

It's said that "Si-so-rap-chi River" in the upper Sorachi River flowing through Furano comes from the meaning of "so-rap-chi" (= falling from here and there) " in the Ainu language.

In the vicinity of the river, there are few artificial items such as houses, and the optimum environment for enjoying rafting in nature is available. Water transparency is also high, so it's a river where you can enjoy "river play" where you can jump into the river during rafting, float Pukapuka and enjoy the beautiful water.

Please don't worry about the tour that you will have a solid explanation about safety beforehand and will accompany a professional foreign guide.
