Owner description: Raft NH is the premier whitewater rafting outfitter in NH and offers the closest Class IV rafting experience to Boston! With trips ranging from mild class II to wild class IV there is a trip for everyone. All of our rafting adventures are all inclusive and include: safety gear, an experience guide(s), transportation to and from the river from our convenient raft base in Gorham, a light riverside snack and lunch! We also offer flatwater rentals (canoes, kayaks, stand-up-paddle-boards and river tubes) for your unguided flatwater exploration. Be sure to ask about our "Paws & Paddles" package which combines daytime whitewater rafting and evening rolling dog sledding adventures all into one adventure packed day.

My girlfriend and I went on one of the best single day trips of our lives. We had never rafted before, so it was to be a new experience. They were so young yet super professional and knowledgeable guides. We did the Class IV rapids- 3 trips down--was exciting & little scary at same time, haha. Plan on making it... More

While we were based on North Conway, my husband and I decided to take a rafting trip with Raft NH located in Gorham (about an hour drive from our hotel). We took the Magalloway River Trip which involved Class III and IV rapids. As directed, we arrived at the shop at 8am to check-in and obtain the necessary gear. We... More

We planned our vacation around the opportunity for a whitewater ducky adventure and booked the Errol Rapid trip online. A couple of days before our trip, we were informed that the 4-person minimum had not been reached and we could cancel or change to Pontook Dam. We took the Pontook Dam trip in a raft and had a good time.... More

Raft NH made for a fun day trip. I chose the Pontook Dam Trip Class II and III and was happy with that choice because it was easy-going but still got me wet and gave a nice little workout. The guides were very friendly and knew how to show everybody a fun time. The trip also included a nice afternoon... More

My teenage boys and I decided a day before to go for this amazing trip on Rapid River. We were very lucky as this was the last tour in 2014 on this class IV river and they do only 4 trips a year. The guys equipped us with all the safety stuff and brought us by bus to the starting... More

Wow! This was my first rafting trip and I am dying to take another. Our guide, Sean, was both very helpful and very personable. The only thing I would change about this trip would be to spend more time in the river as opposed to the bus. I could have done at least one or two more runs!

Ok I want to start by saying I know how hard it is to run a small business and especially how hard it is to find good responsible help. This was our 3rd rafting trip - our first with Raft NH. I think if you are looking for a day on the river this is a fine place to pay... More
