Have you ever imagined spending a weekend sipping wine in a vineyard one day, and cascading down a whitewater river in a raft the next? Are you ready to get back to nature, camping, and river riding in Northern California? The rush of whitewater and the gorgeous scenery will take your breath away as you make memories that will last a lifetime.
Whitewater rafting can be as calm as drifting down a rippling river to an exhilarating rush over ledges in heavy water as well as long and fast wave trains. River runs have classification as to difficulty and skill level. The classifications are rated I-VI with one being the easiest and six being the most dangerous. Being a good swimmer helps, but you should never embark on river adventures without a life vest. Good river habits are a must for you to have fun and successful adventure.
Do you have to have experience or skills to go on these whitewater rafting trips? The answer is no. These trips are designed by skilled guides who are certified and very experienced. Their goal is to make sure you have a wonderful and safe experience. They will instruct you as well as provide all the best safety equipment such as helmets and life jackets. The rafts and paddles are certified for this type of water. Come prepared to get wet while in the wild.
Group trips are the best way to have the most fun ever. Scouts love to ride the waves and drop over ledges on a day-long trip down the river. What better way to spend a family reunion than camping, picnicking, and rafting. Have your event photographed so the memories stay fresh for years to come. Need corporate team building skills? This type of activity is sure to help with bringing a group together to meet a common goal.
What does whitewater rafting and getting married have in common? How about hosting a bachelor or bachelorette party in nature with guides that will see to it that you can let go, loosen up, and still be safe. What a way to share this momentous occasion!
If your job is stressful, such as firefighting, policing, emergency responding, or military, getting back to nature can be healing. Camping out under the stars, and getting on the river, will take your mind off the job and all it entails. This type of retreat is very therapeutic while having fun.

The campground, for those who want to stay overnight, should be top grade. Ask if free wifi is available, Bathhouses with hot showers, clean restrooms, electrical outlets, and mirrors. Grassy platforms, nearby parking, and camping gear rentals (if you don’t have your own) can make for a pleasurable stay. What about food? Would having a professional gourmet chef cooking for you add a special touch to the outing? Vegan and allergy-free meals are not out of the question on the menu. Think about making your next event riding the river in a raft.
