Update June 5, 2023: The Truckee River is open and we are running rafting trips! You may have heard that rafting trips on the Truckee near Tahoe City are not running – we are!
Our trips are often available when the raft rentals in Tahoe City are closed, which is the case this summer. Sections of the Truckee River sometimes close near Tahoe City due to high or low water only coming out of Lake Tahoe which effect raft rental companies in that specific area. Our guided Truckee River rafting trips leave from Truckee which is north of Tahoe City by 20 miles. We are able to run trips due to different water supplies to the river with our section being supplied from reservoirs and lakes such as (Boca, Donner and Stampede).
Be sure to call us if in doubt, as unfortunately, some seasonal hotel workers are not always so well informed.
The Boca and Verdi sections of the Truckee River flow east from Truckee towards Reno. The river travels from the higher elevation pine forests and flows into the High Sierra desert, with cottonwoods lining the banks.
RESERVATIONS ARE ALWAYS REQUIRED on this popular trip, so please book well in advance. During peak season and particularly around July 4th, the afternoon trips can fill up weeks in advance. Space is limited.
Reserve well in advance for and Holidays and Saturday afternoon trips – don’t miss out !
This is NOT the raft rentals out of Tahoe City, which is often not open when we ARE running.
