In 2 days you'll paddle the same distance of our 1-Day trip but with more time to explore the beautiful wilderness of the 2000-foot deep Middle Fork canyon. All of your personal gear is carried by luggage rafts into a remote beach camp. After an action-packed morning of Class III-IV whitewater, we'll relax through a peaceful Class II section of the river. Here you'll have the opportunity to command your own inflatable kayak through the riffles and rapids and we'll also break for a riverside lunch.

Midway through this section, we'll set up our camp for the evening on a remote stellar stretch of beach. Now is the time for complete relaxation. You can fish, wade in a calm pool, read a book, or just fall asleep under a shady oak. We'll wake you in time for hors d'oeuvres and a freshly prepared meal. Later we'll sit by a fire, laugh and tell stories about our runs through the day's rapids. That night you'll sleep under the stars tucked snuggly inside your sleeping bag.

The next day, coffee and a hearty breakfast get us prepared for another day of exhilarating paddling. More Class II whitewater (and more opportunities for kayaking) before we stop to hike up a captivating side stream and break for lunch. Back in the boats, we tackle Chunder Rapid and then your guides will portage your boat around a Class VI 30-foot waterfall. Our 2-Day journey ends with an explosive succession of five Class III-IV rapids before we float into take-out.

The itinerary above may be altered due to a range of variables, including river flow levels, water release schedules, time of year, fire restrictions, and other factors. Contact us if you have any questions.
