BIRTHDAY PARTY TRIPS
 
 
Class Reunion Planning

We can't imagine a more unique birthday party than one spent charging through rapids on one of California's amazing rivers. Whether you're planning a party for yourself or for someone else, a river trip provides the perfect backdrop for a unique birthday party extravaganza. Check out some of the advantages of celebrating your birthday party on the river:

  • Create poignant memories
  • Celebrate the day in a unique and adventurous way
  • Spend more time having fun because we provide meals and transportation

You have many choices about which river to raft, but when planning your unique birthday party trip, we suggest you consider an American River rafting trip. These rivers offer equal amounts of exciting whitewater and time to celebrate with your friends and family.

How to plan your birthday party rafting trip:
