Stryi River Rafting
Rafting in Carpathians on the Stryi River is an awesome, intense, action-packed white-water adventure just two hours south of Lviv. Join our one-day or multi-day rafting trips. Prices include transfers, meals and camping, when applicable. Because the riverbanks are sparsely settled, camping along the riverside is possible almost anywhere.
You will enjoy a fun trip through moderate rapids surrounded by woodlands and mountains – 12 kilometres of white-water rafting and outstanding scenery. But this trip is about more than just white-water. It is also very exciting to hike to scenic spots which overlook the amazing Stryi River Valley and to explore the ancient Rozhirche Cave Monastery.
Stryi is one of the safest rafting rivers for rafting in Carpathians. Starting on the slopes of Mt. Pikuy and flowing in crystal-clear, sparkling torrents through lush, green forests down into the pastoral Stryi Valley, the Stryi River is one of the longest rivers in the region. The surrounding mountains also offer some of the most scenic and varied hiking in the Carpathians.
Children must be 12 years old to raft in high water. Season: from April through October. Unfortunately rafting is not always possible on the Stryi when the water is low (usually in July and August). During low-water season we offer one-day and multi-day trips on the Dniester River.

Rafting from Truskavets
Holidaymakers in Truskavets can take a trip on the Stryi from Mezhybrody to Hirnе. This breath-taking, 2 - 3 hour journey includes the Stryi rapids. The speed, and accordingly the thrill of the rafting trip, depends largely on the water level.
The starting point is 40 km from Truskavets, and although ground transportation is not included in the Rafting Truskavets package, hiring a car or bus to transport your group to the launch location is simple enough.
The Rafting from Truskavets package includes a hike to a fantastic scenic observation area near the village of Tyshivnytsya and the Synovydne and Stynava rapids. After the rafting trip visit the Rozhirche Cave Monastery in the eponymous village. The one hour walk through the picturesque Stryi River valley will significantly diversify the already rich and interesting Rafting from Truskavets package.
After the confirmation, we'll ask you to pay a deposit – 50% of the price. The rest you can pay upon the arrival.
We could offer you to stay a few days after the tour in Lviv. And here you can find information about the hotels and city tours.
