What makes river rafting in California so incredible and unique is the fact that there is not just one answer to that question. California is known as the Golden State, and has glorious sunshine and good weather all year round. As a coastal state, it also has the benefit of the cool ocean breeze, the laid back atmosphere and a stunning selection of scenic areas. The Middle Fork of the American River, near Sacramento, is just one of them.

What Happens on the Routes while River Rafting in California

When a person goes river rafting in California, they can expect an energy-filled few hours full of some of the wildest twists and turns available to rafters. One of the routes is home to the now famous ‘Tunnel Chute’ – a gap in the rock that is over 150 years old, and was originally blasted out by miners searching for gold. This rich historic past only adds to the excitement and mystery of the activity for all who take part.
