    RAFTING

    Preconditions for an exciting and memorable stay on the river are:

    EQUIPMENT MADE ACCORDING TO EU STANDARDS

    LICENSED RAFTING SKIPPERS

    Before going on a rafting guests get equipment and skippers give a short safety brief on proper way of wearing equipment and how to behave in the boat for your safety and the safety of others. Only after that adventure can begin!

    RAFTING EQUIPMENT:

    -Neoprene suit
    -Neoprene footwear
    -Life jacket
    -Rafting helmet
    -Wind jackets

    Neoprene suits are designed for rafting in extreme waters and their main task is to protect the body from cold water and possible impacts. Our guests receive suits from the world's best brands which are known for their quality and durability. For the cooler weather we offer garments with long sleeves, while for the hot summer days we have sleeveless suits.

    Neoprene shoeswith thermal addition are primarily used for protection against the cold, because the legs are the most exposed to the cold water. In addition, shoes provide protection for the foot when you walk along the canyon shore.

    Life jacketis the most important piece of equipment for rafting because it provides buoyancy of each person who finds in the water. Each life jacket meets regulations capacity of safety belts and has a functional design, which enables easy pulling people from the water.

    Rafting helmetis one of the mandatory pieces of equipment for rafting, and the guest must wear it, because in the case of falling out from the boat helmet protects the head from possible injury. Helmets are made of highly durable plastic and filled with comfortable filling that cannot go down.

    Wind jackets are mandatory part of rafting equipment in extreme weather conditions (due to the heavy rain, strong wind or low temperatures).

    LICENSED SKIPPERS FOR RAFTING

    For safe rafting it is extremely important that the skippers are experienced, professional and have license for rafting in international waters. Our team of skippers in addition to extensive experience and professional approach to their vocation possesses a license of the International Rafting Federation (IRF - International Rafting Federation) and the Ministry of the Republic of Srpska. Our skippers speak several languages, and many years of experience make them the best skippers in the canyon of the wild river.

    Safety brief

    When guests get necessary equipment, before the start of the rafting there is a very important part - the safety brief. This is a set of instructions that skippers give their group before the start of "descent".

    The safety brief includes instructions for:

    Behavior in the boat - only licensed skippers know how to gain the trust of all group members, and with the proper approach and good advice they make team capable to overcome all rapids.

    Manner of sitting in the boat - skippers will determine where every group member will sit so that the weight of the group is evenly distributed. They teach all the members of the group where to hold their feet to avoid falling out from the boat.

    Holding the paddles - skippers teach all members of the group how to hold the paddle properly. At first it can be a problem, but with good advice professional skipper paddling technique can be quickly mastered. One hand should be based on the oars, and the other is always at the end of the shaft - it is a so-called T procedure. This provides control over the paddle. Skipper can command: to row all in the boat (ALL), to row only one part of the boat skipper addresses to (right or left) or that no one in boat rows (STOP).

    Directions for contingencies - skippers give instructions for the unwanted situation - falling out of the boat. This usually happens if you do not obey the instructions how to sit properly or how to put your legs under the berths. At one point everyone is in the boat, and at the next someone is out. If that happens, the skippers are there to bring you out from the wild river, but still know the most important rule - do not panic. Life jacket and helmet offer significant protection, it is up to you to get your act together and search for the boat. Hold to it, and if it is away swim to it. We believe that our skipper will get you out and bring you back to the boat before that, but just in case it is important to stay calm.

    Swimming techniques- our skippers will give you instructions for swimming techniques that you can always use if you find yourself in the river. These are techniques "Down River Swimmers Position" (backstroke, with the head high above the water, with the feet facing downward, slightly bent at the knees, in order to push yourself more easily from the rocks) or "stomach swimming" (swimming in order to get to the shore to avoid the situation that you are withdrawn by the strong river stream.)

     

     

  • Team building is more than a three decades a trend that all successful companies practice. Companies that want to enable their employees to get to know each other, to build mutual trust regardless of the job position and thus develop a team spirit and a sense of belonging to the company.

    The literal meaning of “team building" would be creating a team, but put it most briefly team building is a group of educational - recreational or entertainment - recreational activities aimed to create or strengthen the team and improve interpersonal relationships in order to achieve common goals.

    This can be achieved through motivational programs, adventure travel, contests and adventure tours (rafting and hiking). All these aspects of social activities can establish confidence, develop team spirit and raise adrenaline. They can be arranged in the nature, but can also be indoors, like following activities: wellness and spa, culinary competition, bowling or darts competition.

    There are many reasons why team building is useful and the Highlander Team recommends you to strengthen your team in the canyon, on the waves of the wild and beautiful river Tara.

    10 advantages of the team building activities:

    1. Improves communication amongst employees
    2. Develops better mutual understanding of the team members
    3. Allows team members to get to know each other, discover their weaknesses and virtues
    4. Allows team members to learn from each other and to cooperate better
    5. Increases productivity and efficiency of employees
    6. Increases employees’ loyalty
    7. Increases employees’ motivation
    8. Indicates the importance of the impact of each employee
    9. Creates a better understanding of the common goals of the company
    10. Company becomes more pleasant place to work

    Rafting in the Tara canyon is by far the biggest adventure that your employees will have and for a short time together they will overcome many challenges. Choose the Highlander team and give yourself and your employees something special, something that will be remembered. Make sure your team is even stronger and more unified!
