California Dreamin’ – Spring Run Off, Rafting At It’s Best

26th December 2013

We are always in the pursuit of finding the greatest river trips in the world to fuel our passion for wonderful whitewater and the good news is, we have found yet another amazing destination. But rather than just running one river, you’ll get to run 5 rivers in a week on our California Dreamin’ trip. Departing from iconic San Francisco you’ll travel around with the Water By Nature team from river to river and part from one night camping on the Tuolumne, you’ll be staying in hotels every other night. Roughing it? Hardly!

You’ll be running the rivers on offer in the midst of what is traditionally spring run off so all rivers should be at their best. South Fork Of The American River, North Fork of the American, North Fork of the Stanislaus, The Tuolumne (multi-day) and finishing on the famed Cherry Creek run of the Tuolumne. If you have a spare week around Easter – Sunday 20th April 2014 – Sunday 27th April 2014 this could well be the best adventure rafting holiday you’ll do in 2014.
