YES THERE IS RAFTING ON THE TRUCKEE RIVER!!
Our Truckee River rafting trips are a guided whitewater trip featuring Class 2-3+ rapids suitable for ages 7+ and non swimmers. In peak season we typically run 2 trips a day, 1 in the morning and another in the afternoon.
After meeting your guide and getting some basic paddling instructions. The trip will starts with several fun Class 2-2+ rapids as you meander thru the High Sierra desert, with cottonwoods lining the banks. Several miles downstream you will encounter a series of Class 3+ rapids including Jaws & Bronco! Professional photographers are typically located at these big rapids to capture your images as you come thru! These are available for purchase/view online after your trip.
Raft capacity is 5-6 depending on flow. If you have a group of 6-8 you really don’t want to split, then consider a drive to the South Fork American in Lotus, CA (8 max per raft).
This is NOT the raft rentals out of Tahoe City, which is a mellower self guided float trip. We often hear that people were told there was no Truckee River rafting. We are often running trips even when the raft rentals are shut down. Contact us with any questions!
