Buzau and Basca Rivers, Romania

The river Buzau and its tributary Basca are in eastern/central Romania. The usual put-in is close to the power plant in Nehoiu city, midway between Brasov and Buzau on DN 10 road.
The best section is 9 km long, a continuous flow at an average of 60 cms, depending on the dam release (two machines).
Many wave trains, several drops up to 2 m high, no major dangers. Class II-III+.
In spring the tributary Basca is more atractive, with up to 25 km class II-III+ for rafting and extra 15 km for kayaks, canoes or treks only. This upstream section is class III-IV, with lots of pool drops, passing a canion with a lot of wildlife. The whole river runs close to roads.
Currently two companies run the Buzau&Basca system commercially: Mares Outdoor Events and Smarttours. These two operators share the same rafting base.
