Great day rafting!

We loved our day rafting. Our guides were excellent and we made a stop to make hot chocolate from a geothermal spring. The water was cold but we were all dressed in gear so it was very comfortable! Would recommend this tour.

It was such a gorgeous excursion. The water and canyon are so beautiful and we had a blast both rafting and jumping in the water. Our guides were awesome and the hot soak afterward was perfect for warming up.

Absolutely great experience! Fun and exciting while still being safe enough for my 6 yr old. We did the family raft trip on the West Glacial River. The guides were very skilled and we even had a safety kayaker in case we fell in. Equipment was great. Overall, a wonderful adventure.
