Enjoy this relaxing, whitewater rafting adventure along the Wenatchee River in the state of Washington, widely considered one of the top 10 whitewater rafting rivers in the country.
The water level in the Wenatchee is typically high in May, June and early July. But as the water level drops in mid-to-late July, so does the intensity of the rapids, calming to a Class II category by August. The river mellows out, making it great for new rafters as well as swimmers who want a little variety on this trip.
With over 300 days of sunshine a year, the scenic Wenatchee is a perfect destination for those hot, sunny, late summer days.
The trip begins near the Bavarian village of Leavenworth, located amidst the North Cascade mountains. Enjoy a leisurely, scenic float through small towns, apple and pear orchards and the Eastern Washington desert, hitting Class II rapids along the way. The trips ends along the banks of the Wenatchee River in Monitor, WA — just 10 minutes outside of the town of Wenatchee.
A buffet lunch — featuring barbecue chicken, green salad, watermelon, bean salad and beverages — is served at a private base camp after the morning trip or before the afternoon excursion.
