The guides will drive you into the East Valley to the starting point of the rafting trip. Your trip leader will give a safety brief with all of the relative safety information needed to get the most out of your trip.
We take to the river rafting 16 km through the East Glacial canyon. We will tackle rapids such as Alarm, Clock, Commitment, Screaming Lady and of course the famous Green Room. Depending on the water levels there will be a stop for some clif jumping for those that feel they need a little more excitement. The bus will then meet you at the take out, where steaming hot soup is served. After a 20 minute ride back to the base you can unwind in the hot pool.
