Extreme Whitewater Rafting
Break out the paddles and make sure you have a good grip -- the rivers we list below are known to run wild. While whitewater rafting is a terrific recreation for the whole family, some rivers give more "rush and thrill" than "relax and chill." From the beautiful Franklin River in Tasmania to the thunderous Noce River in Italy, we rounded up exciting rivers that are best known for offering heart-pounding adventures.
