The Exciting Sport of Whitewater Rafting

Whitewater Rafting Is A Huge Adrenaline Rush!

Bryce Canyon Adrenaline adventure enthusiasts will likely find whitewater rafting an amazing, truly energizing experience. If you are not a hard core outdoor individual, experienced rafter,  well trained and athletic, don?t worry ? there are a lot of options for families, which are mild in intensity. In fact, grand canyon rafting trips require no previous rafting skills as the guides are navigating the rapids, with the exception of a paddle raft however even in this case, no experience is necessary. The guide sits at the back of the raft and directs you and the other passengers as you dig into the water. Do not misinterpret the fact that even though you're not rowing, that these trips are not exciting because you will be rafting through many class 7, 8, 9 and 10's on a 1 - 10 rating scale in the Grand Canyon, not to mention incredible side canyon excursions with beautiful scenery. The magic of whitewater rafting is that it does not only provide a rush while on river, but it also offers the possibility to combine other memorable experiences including hiking to notable attractions and natural waterfalls as well as camping at a new location down river each night for multi-day rafting trips. These trips will entertain, energize and relax you. If you seek a more  extreme rafting adventure, you can find a river with higher class rapids but keep in mind that along with this requires higher skill level and experience. The smaller the vessel, the more challenging it is to remain inside the raft when traveling through rapids.
