TRIP DESCRIPTION

This beautiful rafting trip through mild whitewater (Class I & II with one Class III) is the perfect outing for families, friends, groups and youth organizations. Daily dam control ensures we start out with a bang at “Hurricane Rapid” followed by bouncy rapids such as “Sideways Splash”, “Freight Train” and “Pinball”.

Calm rafting sections allow your guide to fill you in on local history and to enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the Berkshires. Midway through the rafting trip our self-bailing rafts approach the day’s biggest rapid, “Zoar Gap”. The river suddenly narrows and drops for the fastest and most fun rapid of the day.

After safely navigating this exciting Class III stretch, the second half of the rafting trip includes fun river rapids such as “Slam Dance” and “Cold River Rapid” as well as opportunities to get out of the boat and float or engage in team water fights.

Includes: Pre-trip safety instruction, professional guide, PFD and helmet, wetsuits (spring only), riverside picnic lunch, transportation to and from river, photo presentation of your adventure and FUN.

Schedule: The Fife Brook Section trip runs nearly every day from April 15 through October 14 thanks to hydroelectric dam releases.
