Fantastic river rafting!

Great class 3-4 rapids in a beautiful setting. Wouldn't take kids younger than 10, as the current is strong and the water quite cold.

Zolander rafting. Exciting, fun and safety oriented. I was afraid to try rafting, but they made me feel secure. Our guide was so knowledgable about the river and the changing conditions over the last 20 years. I had a great time and will go rafting again.

The White Salmon River rafting is fantastic. Go early when flows are large and the water is cold. I mean COLD (38F). There are some slack courses, but overall it's a great run. The 9' drop over the fall is absolutely worth the trip. The meal the rafting company provided, was super (for the side of a river). Pictures were... More

The White Salmon River is one of just a few nationally designated wild & scenic rivers, in Washington State . Most people come for the river rafting. There are several guide services available, book ahead for prime summer weekends !

Beautiful and quiet. There weren't many people around and the grandkids loved it. It felt really safe. Bathrooms were outhouses....you have to have some pain with all that beauty. Roads are well maintained.

White Water Rafting on the White Salmon River in Wash. is a must do! After reading reviews on Trip Advisor, I selected Wet Planet. So glad I did. We had a wonderful rafting trip, felt very safe(instructions before, we even got off & walked around a dangerous waterfall w/a sharp log sticking up in the middle) Professional from the time...

Went rafting with River Drifters in Husum. I have been rafting a number of times before but this was the best location for the combination of good scenery, nice weather (in the summer warm weather and cold water), and quality rafting. It has a good number of different good rapids with many challenging 3 - 4 rapids but nothing too... More

We rafted with Wet Planet and had a GREAT time! We took the 1/2 day trip over the Memorial Day weekend (Thanks to all of our Men and Women in the Armed Forces...). Wet Planet took care of everything: All we had to do was show up and get ready for an adventure of a lifetime! I've lived in the... More
