Obstacles divide the Strypa river into several sections. The upper section (from Plotycha to Sokil’nyky) contains many felled trees and branches. These can tangle up oars and tear clothing. The middle section (Sokil’nyky to Buchach) there are many manmade obstacles: dams, mills and dilapidated footbridges. In the area of Zhyznomyr the river is approximately half a kilometer wide. The lower section (downstream of Buchach) Strypa becomes wide and shallow. Vessels often have to be portaged. There are many hanging footbridges along the river. The rocky riverbed creates rapids that require constant maneuvering.
Down to Buchach, the river flows through many settlements so potable water, transportation, medical and other assistance is fairly easy to obtain from the locals.
After Buchach the Strypa is nestled in a dense wild forest. There are many beautiful places to rest or camp but picking a spot which offers potable water is essential.
After the confirmation, we'll ask you to pay a deposit – 50% of the price. The rest could be paid upon the arrival.
