Welcome to the fascinating world of rivers. Rivers, what’s all the fuss about we hear you cry? They are just natural, moving streams of fresh water right? Correct, but if you put it like that they don’t sound all that interesting. So let’s put it differently, shall we?
Rivers are one of nature’s most exciting features. They can be hugely powerful with dangerous rapids and waterfalls and can over-flood, destroying anything that stand in their way. Some are used for making electricity and transporting goods from place-to-place and others are calm and picturesque, perfect for canoeing or sailing down.
In this section we will take a close look at the crazy, curvy life of rivers and explain why they behave like they do. We will show you the biggest ones, the fastest ones and tell you countless other interesting things you don’t already know.
