Try a One Day Rafting Trip on the American River

 White water rafting on the American River in California is an exhilarating trip that you’ll never forget. The experience of flying down the river, navigating the rapids and enjoying the wildlife is the perfect way to spend the day in the outdoors.

However, not everyone enjoys the camping that goes along with most river rafting trips. If sleeping in a tent is really not your thing, you don’t have to worry. Adventure Connection has one day trips on the American River that allow you to experience the excitement of the white water without having to sleep on the ground.

Your river rafting trip will still take you through famous Class III rapids, such as the Hospital Bar, Recovery Room, and Satan’s Cesspool. On a one day trip, you’ll meet at the campground, get basic instruction, tackle the rapids, and be bussed back to camp, where you can take a hot shower before you depart from your new friends.

This whitewater rafting trip is perfect for beginners and includes equipment, instruction, raft, a guide and lunch. You’ll just need to show up in clothes that can get wet, wear river shoes, and be ready to have fun. Adventure Connection is accepting reservations for the spring. So don’t delay — these trips fill up fast.
