Deerfield River Half-Day Family Rafting
Class of Rapids: I-II
Minimum Age: 5
Length: 8 miles
River Time: 3 hours
Food: riverside snack, Option: add cookout after trip

Our afternoon Guided Family Raft Trip is great for younger rafters and their families as well as adults interested in easy whitewater and a unique way to see the scenery of the Deerfield River valley. During eight miles on the river you'll enjoy a combination of floating, splashes of whitewater, opportunities for swimming and a riverside snack. Your guide will take you on the best route to enjoy the float parallel to the historic Mohawk Trail, ending the trip behind our riverside base camp.

Our Self-Guided Raft Trip follows the same route, but puts you in charge. This is a popular option for groups of 4-6 who want to share the afternoon together. Navigate your raft through the small rapids any way you like, jump in for a swim or just float and enjoy the scenery. Minimum age 10.


Thanks so much ...

“Our students continue to talk about the intensity of the experience and the exciting day they had...Experiences like this make better kids!...You made our group feel extremely special and treated each one of us with respect and care. Though many students were nervous before the trip, not one has expressed a moment where they felt insecure or unsafe. That is purely a credit to the ability of your guides to care for children and make them feel that they are in good hands.”
