3 reasons to go whitewater rafting

February 25, 2015

Often people who have been whitewater rafting keep coming back, but those who have not tried it before may not know what they are missing. Whitewater rafting has something to offer everyone, from mild to wild. Besides the excitement and fun of the rapids, there are many other great aspects of a multi-day river trip.  Here are just a few of the reasons why you might want to choose a whitewater rafting trip for your next vacation:
  • It’s a great bonding experience.  If you’re looking for an activity to bring your family, friends or coworkers together, a river trip is a great fit.  It is a perfect place to unplug from all the technology of the modern world and spend some quality time with friends and family.
  • Enjoy the outdoors. So many people these days spend little or no time in the outdoors. It’s great to breathe fresh air and spend time being active in the outdoors.  An active vacation is a step in the right direction toward a healthy lifestyle. Often people who spend more time in the outdoors are healthier and happier. Also, numerous plants and animals make their homes alongside rivers, so rafting is a great chance to get an up-close look at the natural world. Taking a trip through a wild, untamed wilderness area will put your existence as an animal on this planet in perspective.
  • Keep cool in the summer. Whitewater rafting is a great chance to get some exercise outdoors in the summer while also keeping cool. The splash from the rapids will help you keep from overheating on the raft, and you’ll be able to swim in the river throughout the day if desired. The Main Salmon is a refreshing temperature for swimming throughout the summer and perfect for inflatable kayaking.  Kids and families love the Salmon as it offers a perfect mixture of beach and adventure vacation.
