North America’s Top Rafting Destinations
There is a certain thrill one gets from white water rafting that is different from any other experience. While the rafting season is now over, here is the top 3 white water rafting courses to help rafters start planning for next year:
Alsek and Tatshenshini Rivers, Alaska/Canada. Glaciers and icebergs are among the attractions on these two rivers flowing through an astonishing northern wilderness of mountains and tundra on the borders of Alaska and Canada. As well as superb white water, the trip offers you an unforgettable experience of wildlife, from grizzlies and moose to spawning salmon and luscious blueberries.
Magpie River, Canada. A float plane takes you to Magpie Lake, the start of this eight-day trip through the remote pine forests of eastern Quebec province. Your first rapids come as you leave the lake for the Magpie River, and from then on they grow in difficulty until you reach the challenge of Class V rapids downriver from the spectacular Magpie Falls. You camp at night on river islands, and to the north you see the pulsating glory of the aurora borealis (northern lights).
Middle Fork, Salmon River, Idaho. This is one of the world’s most popular whitewater rivers, with everything to offer you—rapids up to Class IV and glorious alpine and forest scenery as it flows through America’s largest roadless wilderness area outside Alaska. Wildlife can include the enchanting sight of a mother bear swimming across the river with her cubs.
Not only do these courses provide a thrilling white water experience, but also an abundance of natural scenery and wildlife that you surely want to be able to share with friends and family via pictures and video.
