I was part of a group that traveled down the mighty Franklin River in March under the company Franklin River Rafting (http://www.franklinriverrafting.com), led by the fantastic Elias and Franzi. We were gone for 10 days, away from the stress and technology of modern life. It is a perfect opportunity to not only test yourself physically and mentally, but also for personal reflection.
The more I think back on it, the more I realise that those of us on this trip could enjoy this amazing all the more thanks to both Elias and Franzi's knowledge of the river and its surrounds. Their level of care and professionalism is beyond superlatives. Their enthusiasm is contagious. Their wilderness cooking deserves a michelin star. I am very thanksful I was able to raft this river with them. If I did it again, I would not hesitate to give them a call.
For me personally, it was an unforgettable trip where I could both relax and admire such a magical place. No words, photos or videos are suitable to describe this iconic wilderness. You *must* experience it for yourself.
