Morocco is an incomparable destination for the practice of sports such as rafting, kayaking, or canoe. Atlantic and Mediterranean coasts offer more than 3700 kilometres of coastline; two important massive mountain, divided in the Middle, high and suede-Atlas, with the highest peak in North Africa to 4175 meters of altitude, and the mountains of the Rif from the Mediterranean-, provide myriad rivers flowing through its slopes and a river of thousands of kilometers network. In addition, Moroccan landscape diversity, biodiversity, its coasts and its rural environment and its excellent tourism industry, as well as its fantastic climate and many attractions that it offers, make this country one of the most popular destinations in the world and one of the most attractive places for the practice of rafting. Water levels vary depending on the season, but the most favorable period for rafting is the spring, from March to may. The melting of the mountains and a slight rise in rainfall provide conditions of descent excellent, spectacularly adorned by the panorama of snow capped mountains of the Atlas. Some of the most exciting and stimulating places of descent found in the oueds, these ravines or beds of streams so characteristic of the Maghreb and the Middle East, they are usually practically deserted. Usually found in the bottom of canyons and gorges, with the breathtaking view of the mountains and its quick, fresh and pure water.

A region famous for its exceptional conditions for the practice of rafting is the basin of Oum Er R bia in the Middle Atlas. It is said that its name, which means mother of the spring, comes from more than 40 sources of fresh and salt water that feed the River, although the mythological version claimed that Oum Errabia vowed to sacrifice, drowning, 40 people a year. The river Our Er R bia has a considerable flow of 117 m per second, which would explain the fact that no less than eight dams have been built along its 575 km.
