Gold Country

We offer many white water rafting trips located in the Gold Country. Trips are most popular & more available April-September, but trips are available year round. The Gold Country provides some of the best whitewater in the US. The Gold Country (aka Mother Lode country) is located on the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada foothill. Historic Highway 49 meanders through the historic Gold Rush towns of Placerville, Coloma, Auburn, Nevada City & Downieville, just to name a few.

Kids ages 4+ are welcome to participate in a rafting trip. There are several levels of whitewater excitement to be had and we offer all options from mellow to extreme. Class 2, 3, 4 & 5 rapids are suitable for certain ages & abilities.

Consider a Gold Country rafting trip for the following:

  • A romantic weekend for a couple, with a stay in a Victorian bed & breakfast inn, wine tasting and plentiful restaurants with world class cuisine.
  • A family vacation with camping and additional activities for kids including caving and biking. Also many historic Gold Rush sites.
  • Active singles seeking some real adventure rafting, with other activities like mountain biking and hiking.
