Some of the Best White Water Rafting is in California

River rafting is an exciting adventure that nearly everyone can do. There are whitewater rafting trips all over the country that you can go on regardless of what your skill level is. No matter where you live, you can probably find a river rafting adventure within either a day’s drive, or a short plane ride.

However, if you want some of the best river rafting available in the United States, California is the place to be. The American River, east of Sacramento, has some of the best river rafting in the country. If you’re a beginner, the South Fork of the American River is the perfect place for you to try out white water rafting. It has many famous Class III rapids, and is exciting enough to keep your heart pumping the entire trip, without being too scary for beginners.

And if you already have some experience, and are ready for a new thrill, check out the Middle Fork and the North Fork of the American River, as well as the Kaweah and Tuolumne Rivers. These rivers have rapids from Class III, IV, and V. Whitewater rafting trips on these rivers are designed for the experienced rafter, and are sure to please.

When you’re in California, take the time to get in touch with nature and take a white water rafting trip down the American River. Contact Adventure Connection to see what trips are available, and book your next rafting vacations.
