My husband and I took a Whitewater rafting trip this past September with Mad River. We were in a raft with four other people and our guide Christian. A little chilly but it was a blast!! Highly recommend Mad River.

We were in a small raft and our trip was great! It was even safe for my 7-year old granddaughter yet was full of action for all of of us. Our guide, J. R., was awesome and shared lots of interesting facts!

What a fun day in the river! Ian was the best- expert and knowledgeable. Told great stories. Knew just how to take the rapids for a wet and wild time. Highly recommend for an adventurous day.

This early morning trip was phenomenal. Beautiful views and our tour guide Molly was the cherry on top of a perfect trip. Thanks Molly!

Maybe it was the picture perfect September weather, maybe it was the Snake River flowing just right for a rafting newbie with enough power at the right times to leave a life-long impression (you know what I mean), maybe it was our guide's (Elaine) best...More

Christian was our guide and he was very good at his job. Offered us binoculars, pointed out anything of interest. We saw eagles, ducks, geese, and some sort of weasely thing that I think was a mink. I'm a terrible swimmer so can be nervous...More

For teens, we recommend our small boats or our super small boats. If you've never been, perhaps start off with the small boats. If this is not your first time rafting, or you are a fairly active family looking for... More
