Feel the rush of rafting on a white-water Rouge River adventure that’s fun for beginners and experienced paddlers. On the water, you’ll tackle 5 miles (8 kilometers) of waves on one of North America’s top ten rafting runs. Between rapids, take in the surrounding beaches and calm pools, and body surf on the current. Afterwards, head back to base camp to unwind in the hot tub or pool and enjoy the snack-bar. Plus, you can choose from two departure times throughout the day.
Meet your guide and small-group (of up to 10 people) at the rafting center base camp 30 minutes prior to your chosen start time to begin your rafting adventure. Once everyone is at the base camp reception area, you will take a shuttle up the river to the starting point (approx 30-55 min. depending on the section of river). After a safety briefing on land, you will then get into your inflatable raft. Your professional guide will practice basic rafting manoeuvres with you and he will explain what to do and how to react before each rapid. Then you will hit the rapids. One of the advantages of the Rouge River is that you will experience calm pools after each rapid, adding diversity to your trip and making the descent fun. As you go down the river, you will enjoy beautiful scenery and sandy beaches. Between rapids, you will have the opportunity to body surf and float in the current. After the river descent (approx 2 hours), you will go back to base camp, where you can take advantage of the pool, hot tub, snack bar, and showers before you head on to your next adventure.
