Trip at a Glance
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. Rafting time is approximately 2.5 hours with a deli style lunch included for morning trips and a cookout following afternoon trips. Meals are served dry and warm at Crab Apple’s riverside base camp.
Our Fife Brook trip starts out with a bang at “Hurricane Rapid” followed by bouncy rapids such as “Sideways Splash”, “Freight Train” and “Pinball”. Calm sections between rapids allow your River Guide to fill you in on local history and to enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the Berkshires. Part way through the 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 “Zoar Gap”, raft teams will enjoy optional team water fights and a few more rapids including “Slam Dance” and “Walmart Shopper”. When our journey down the river ends, we return to Crab Apple for a hearty meal overlooking the Deerfield River and an entertaining slide show of the trip’s best action.
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 early April through October 11 thanks to hydroelectric dam releases.
