If you dig adrenaline without being freaked out, gourmet meals in the wilderness, someone doing all the heavy lifting for you, and being pampered while having the adventure of your life, then going rafting with a commercial rafting company is the way to go.

Insider Tip

Even if you’re going rafting with an outfitter, make sure to bring water and plenty of snacks for the car ride to and from the river. There are no stores nearby and you are likely to be hungry and thirsty after a day of rafting!
