Raft NH specializes in summertime whitewater rafting adventures. With trips ranging from family-friendly 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! No experience necessary, ages 6+ welcome, reservation required. Be sure to ask about our "Paws & Paddles" package which combines a daytime whitewater rafting experience and evening rolling dog sledding adventure all into one adventure packed day. Proceeds generated from our summertime adventures help provide for the 100+ amazing sled dogs that call us home (many of which are rescue and second chance).

I was extremely nervous since this was my first time ever rafting! (Go big or go home, I guess) The guide was great about reviewing all safety instructions prior to rafting, discussing... More

We went up North for my parents'50th anniversary and had booked this rafting trip months ago. We had an issue and when we showed up for our trip, we were denied service. We spoke to the owner, who was unwilling to assist us to work out an agreeable resolution. As a prior business owner myself, I know how important it... More

Our extended family met us to go rafting: 5 adults and 5 kids. Everyone had a great time. The guides were all fun; my son thought they were basically rock stars and that being a raft guide would be a great job. I can't believe the guides do this every day and still make it so much fun for everyone.... More
