Fırtına Deresi holds a great danger under its beauty! Sometimes, especially after huge rains or winter, it flows with great power and a stormy noise. In these times, it is very dangerous to get into the water. However there are still many crazy people trying rafting. The most famous part of the river is the old interesting bridge. When the weather is not rainy, and the water flows strong, it is just spectacular here! Listening the river and the nature can extend your life a little further..
The restaurant next to the river is a "must visit" place! Eating a Karadeniz salad and eggs in pan will let you remember that you are living!
Beyond its chilling characteristic, Fırtına Deresi is a special rafting course! Its name is a great marketing for rafting society since rafting is associated with adventure and danger. The national rafting championships takes place in this river also and is not an easy one. This river is a whole reason to visit Rize actually!
