“Good Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

We wanted to experience Arctic rafting, so this was our chance. Honestly the entire experience was well run, however the river-ride was not all that thrilling. I have been rafting before in West Virginia, and I found that that river had much more "white water" than this one. Both trips were for beginner rapids. However, the entire experience was quite fun. It was fun to dress up in a wetsuit and prepare for the journey. I didn't jump in the water, but could imagine that it would still be quite cold! The price is quite high, so I would only recommend this if you have time. If you are seeking more of a challenge, do not pick the mildest of rapids.

“Wish I could've brought my camera along”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Well, I fell out of the boat - so that was a memorable experience! But the river was gorgeous. I will have to just remember it in my mind.

“A boatload of fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

This is one of those great day trips! No fear, not the most challenging rafting and the guides make it fun with a bit of irreverence. Go for the afternoon start so you you can have the lamb Bbq! And drink Gull...cold cold Gull mmm. You may have time to drink enough to figure out how to pronounce the name! Just don't drink too much that you'll want to burst on the way home! I love neoprene too!

“fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

if you have the time, this is great fun. The sauna after will warm you back up and you won't feel the cold because you are having so much fun.
