In the most excursions is permitted to swim on the river. Especially on the excursion of Waterfun and Thermal bath this is the core of the excursion. Restriction is only applying at Enipeas river where is the core of a National Park. The best period for an open cold water is from end of May till end of September, depending on the weather condition also.
