Whitewater River Rafting Trips
in Northern California
Northern California are 10 of the best whitewater rafting rivers. For example:
South Fork American River is the most popular whitewater river in California with great rapids and beautiful scenery. Fun for everyone. The
Middle Fork American River, just 50 miles from Sacramento, flows through a 2000-foot deep wilderness canyon and has a taste of Class IV (intermediate) rafting. Head toward Yosemite National Park and you'll find the
Merced & Tuolumne Rivers. Go South toward Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park and experience the
Kaweah River. The
California Salmon River, 6 hours north of Sacramento, thrills experienced rafters.

"All-Outdoors is a great rafting company. They're large enough to raft most of the major Northern California rivers, but they are also family-owned and small enough that every trip (I've now done 4) feels like a special outing. The guides are a lot of fun and always professional and safe."
