Canoeing/Rafting

Çoruh River hosts river sports tourism since 1993 when the World River Sports Championship was organized with 300 sportsmen from 28 countries by Tourism Ministry. Beside the tributaries (for example, Barhal Stream near Yusufeli)  whose degree of difficulty is easy, Çoruh includes difficult racecourses which are grade 4 or 5 rapids. It has become famous for this feature. However, the popularity has started to decrase because of the dams, political affairs, the increase of the artificial racecourses etc. Nevertheless, the only artificial canoeing racecourse of Turkey is on Barhal Stream and it is supposed to stop this trend.
