Owner description: 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).

“Guides made the trip Memorable!”
Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

This was my second time white water rafting, and this time my entire family was with us. The tour guides are what truly earned the 5 star review. Certain things bugged me about the trip, but it was the tour guys that made it memorable. Our guide Ryan in particular was very funny, and made sure we had a great time. All of the tour guides were laid back, and easy to talk with. They did not make you feel embarrassed to ask questions that one may feel are silly to ask. They were very informative, helpful, and most of all fun.

My only issues with the trip was that you do not have a continual trip, but actually you must stop and return to the starting point. Much of the trip felt a little disorganized as we had to wait for one of the guides to return the raft's trailer to the end point and then get a ride back to the starting point by the bus driver. This took approx. 15 min which is a long time when you are standing around in excitement for the next trip. The last area of disorganization was the end where you eat lunch. First of all we had to wait while lunch was brought, and second the TV with out pictures from the trip was not set up so we could watch while eating.

I did not give a less score as you are forewarned prior to the trip of these things, but I feel an extra person to drive the raft trailer as well as purchase the food before we arrived at the picnic area for lunch could have made the trip feel a lot smoother. None the less the trip was fun, exciting, and a memory for my family we will never forget. I totally recommend Raft NH!!!

My husband and I took our first white water rafting trip while celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. It was an amazing way to spend the day. The guides were upbeat and wonderful. The trip itself could not be beat. We had the time of our lives and will be taking the whole family back next month!

“Exhilarating fun!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Our family of 4 (2 parents and kids ages 13 and 16) went white water rafting with Muddy Paw Raft NH in August and had the time of our lives!!!! We can't wait to go back and do it again. Mom and daughter were nervous about going at first but by the 2nd run down the river were exhilarated and excited about going again next year. The staff was entertaining as well as being skilled at their jobs. Give them 5 out of 5 stars for wholesome healthy family fun. Thank you all. The Haskells of North Attleboro, MA.

“Great Guide, Great Fun!!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

We arrived for our trip thinking we would have to split up because we were 6 adults and 3 kids, but to our surprise our guide Curtis said we could go in one raft. He said he was up for the challenge. Our children's ages ranged from 9-12, we had a BLAST!!! Our guide was Awesome-we laughed the whole trip. I would defiantly recommend this attraction to familes.
