American River North Fork Rafting Trip

Thrill-seekers will love the North Fork’s adrenaline pumping class IV and V rapids. Continuous challenging whitewater combined with incredible scenery make this one unforgettable American River rafting trip.

What to Expect on Your North Fork Rafting Adventure

We’ll meet up behind the Raley’s supermarket, at the arranged meeting time. We’ll get all the waivers signed and drive about 30 minutes to the launch site. Then we’ll set you up with your helmet, paddle & personal flotation device. Next, the head guide will deliver a short safety briefing to the group, and once you’re assigned a raft guide you can head down to water.

This is our most scenic run and you’ll be cruising through an impressive gorge with breathtaking scenery and exciting whitewater. This combination makes it the perfect rafting experience.

Epic Whitewater… and Then a Delicious Lunch!

You’ll get continuous whitewater excitement on this trip so be prepared to get straight into it and hang on tight! You’ll get non-stop rapids from start to finish.

After conquering some Class V rapids, you’ll have surely worked up an appetite! We will take a break at the riverside for a delicious lunch. Lunch is always seasonal and changing, make sure to let us know if you have any dietary restrictions! We are always happy to accommodate you!

Let’s Smash Through Some Class IV and V Rapids!

We’ll smash our way through challenging class IV and V rapids such as the exhilarating Zig-Zag, Achilles Heal and Bogus Thunder. Then get ready because the famous Chamberlain Falls await!

Finally, we’ll arrive at Lake Clementine before driving back to Raley’s supermarket where our trip will conclude. We hope you enjoyed your American River whitewater rafting experience with Sierra Whitewater!
