Hey! We're so glad you had fun on the Tuolumne. The river and rapids (and Katie) are great. Thanks for sharing.

I can't say enough about ARTA! They handled my group with such amazing skill and experience I felt 1,000% safe the entire time. I brought 12 of my Girl Scouts to the American River, South Fork for their very first white water rafting experience and...More

Our family (including 2 teens) had a fantastic 1 day trip on the Tuolumne. Even in July the water was moving well (daily damn release) and there's steady action for 18 miles. Our guide, Olivia, provided a great balance of safety, knowledge, and fun! We...More

This was our second year in a row on the Rogue River with ARTA and we are already looking forward to doing it again next summer. The river is beautiful, clean, and wild, and offers just the right amount of excitement. I often felt exhilarated...More

Hi Meddogs. Sorry. We hated to have to cancel your trip. There were a lot of moving pieces that conspired to make it unworkable for us to run the trip for just the two of you. I'm glad you got on the river.

Nothing else to say about this other than fantastic. The river, the guides, the food, the camping, the other students and of course the river were all fantastic. Learned a ton and had a great time. Can't wait to return to the Salmon River.
