Water tourism (boating and rafting)
Most of regional mountain rivers are well mastered by tourists: the Chornyi Cheremosh, Cheremosh, Bilyi Cheremoch, Prut, Stryi, Tysa rivers and rivers of its basin in Transcarpathian region - Rika, Latorytsia. During the last time the routes along such small rivers as tributaries of the Cheremosh River (Probiina, Bystrets), tributaries of the Stryi River, the Upper Prut have been also developed. It became possible due to the comparatively new type of boats - kayak. You can overcome the Carpathian rivers by kayaks, canoes, catamarans, rafts.
The best time for boating is the end of April - beginning of May during the flood when snow melting is the most intensive. First of all it concerns the Prut, Chornyi Cheremosh, Bilyi Cheremosh rivers and small tributaries suitable for boating only during some spring days.
Rafting by the Cheremosh and Tysa rivers is possible over the whole warm period - from April till October. From May till September one can go through the Dniestr canyons by rafts.
Depending on the season and boat type the routes along the Carpathian rivers are classified up to the III level of complexity with the elements of the V one. The Carpathian rivers are the beautiful place for inter-seasonal preparation for the difficult trips.
Routes along the Carpathian rivers are recommended for different tourist groups. Here it's possible to make trips of different level of complexity - from the 1st level to the 4th including.
