Thanks for the review, Magdalena! We are happy that you had the opportunity to raft with us. Hopefully next time the lower canyon will be open so that we can get you out heli-rafting. :)

This is the first time I've been rafting and I can't wait to go again! The trip was so well organized and everyone was so laid back. We had AJ as our guide and had the best time.

Hey Oliver. Actually, Wild Water Adventures start at the same place as Alpine does, so they are not, in fact, the "only" company to start there. Wild Water was there before Alpine, actually...just so as you know the truth. Thanks!

We have booked a rafting tour with you for 8 June, I noticed that on one of the reviews they mentioned free camping. We will be travelling in a motorhome, will the camping facilities on your site be suitable or should we arrange to stay somewhere else?
