Why Should You Go Whitewater Rafting?

Sure, you like a good adventure as much as anyone else. But why go white water rafting in California? Wouldn’t you have as much fun at the beach? Well, you might, but there are so many more things you can get out of whitewater rafting. Here are a few examples:

See nature – Whitewater rafting gets you out into the wilderness, which is increasingly hard to do these days. It’s just you, your group, your guide and the raft, out there on the river. You’ll have a good chance of seeing eagles, fish, deer and other wildlife, along the way.

Test your strength – You don’t have to be super strong, but you will get a chance to see how far you can push yourself. You will also get to test your reaction time in a safe environment. And don’t worry: your whitewater rafting guides are there to look out for you.

Adrenaline – River rafting is a lot like riding roller coasters all day long at an amusement park, only without the annoying lines. You have the chance to go through over fifty rapids, during a one or two day trip, with a slight break in between each to catch your breath.

Bond with a group – River rafting requires that everyone work together to keep the raft going where you want it. White water rafting in California is a great way to bond with your family or friends and will give you something to brag about, afterwards.

There’s no question about it: whitewater rafting on the American River is an adventure you won’t soon forget. Contact Adventure Connection, now, and reserve your trip.
