Are You Up To The North Fork Challenge?

Our advanced trips are full of adrenaline with continuous rapids and lots of excitement

The North Fork American River offers one of the most challenging and demanding rafting runs in all of Northern California, but cross our hearts — this white water rafting trip is well worth the adrenaline rush. This natural free flowing river requires prior technical experience on its medium/low flows and will push your limits on raging rapids at higher flows. Our journey begins with a scenic shuttle ride to our launching point. Once we’ve arrived, you’ll meet our expertly trained river guides, who will share safety procedures* and paddling instructions before we embark on this thrilling rafting tour.

Almost immediately, we’ll head into “Slaughter Sluice” a heart pounding rapid that plunges into a narrow gorge. We’ll also face wild rapids such as “Chamberlain Falls,” “Bogus Thunder,” and “Staircase” along the way. Wraps and flips are common! At lunch, we’ll take a pause from the action, when you’ll be invited to indulge in a deli-style buffet. After mealtime, we’ll ramp up the fun and continue on our adventure. As the river eases up, you’ll have a chance to catch your breath and take in the spectacular scenery that surrounds, including the area’s famous rock walls that can tower up to 4,000-feet above water.
