The 2-day true wine tasting and california white water rafting trip!


Named by Sunset Magazine as one of “The Top Ten River Trips In The West”, Adventure Connection is the only professional river outfitter in California offering one day of rafting combined with a day of chauffeured wine tasting at some of California’s finest award winning wineries. El Dorado County has earned a reputation for producing extraordinary varietals, and we’ve been compared to the Napa and Sonoma Valley regions of decades past. In other words, our region and our wines are largely undiscovered gems just waiting for you to enjoy them.”

We begin all of our trips at 9:00 AM on day one by introducing ourselves and all of you to each other though, like our other offerings, you have the night prior camping/breakfast on day one option available to you. Our trips usually include anywhere from 6 to 20 people. We’ll spend that first day visiting 4 to 6 wineries and, often, even a micro-brewery. We’ll stop along the way for a delicious lunch at one of our local bistros and finish the day back our camp where appetizers and a hearty meal await you. We encourage you purchase the wines you enjoyed during the day, and if you’d like us to keep them in safe storage we’ll put them away for you in our refrigerated walk-in until your departure….or you can choose to partake in them that evening along with the wines and beer that we’ll provide. Day two is spent running the upper Chili Bar section of the river – a solid Class III intermediate thrill. You’ll have breakfast that morning and finish with a late lunch in the afternoon, after which you can bid farewell to your new-found friends. All our wine tasting adventures begin on either Thursdays or Saturdays, and you must be 21 years of age to join them.


With over 25 years of running the highest quality rafting trips and river tours, Adventure Connection invites you to join us on one of our spectacular rafting adventures. We have whitewater rafting trips on the South Fork American, Middle Fork American, North Fork American, Tuolumne and Kaweah rivers.
