Rapid River Trip -  Class IV

The Rapid River is a legendary adventure among paddlers. However, it is so remote that commercial outfitters stopped running it years ago. Raft NH is reviving the legend of the Rapid River. As the closest solid Class IV river from Boston, this trip fills up fast! Let us transport you from our base in Gorham, NH through the deep woods to an adrenaline packed adventure. Above average physical condition is highly recommended. This trip starts out with a gorgeous 30 minute/1.5 mile paddle across "Pond in the River" where our experienced Maine Guides teach you how to paddle the raft. From there, it's all downhill, which is a good thing if you are rafting! Rapid after rapid with successively increasing intensity for 4 miles is what gives this river its legendary status. Holes the size of SUV's and towering waves will have you asking when we can go again! Finish off the river trip with a relaxing raft tow across the pristine Umbagog Lake. A late lunch is enjoyed on our way back to base.  Guests must be ages 14 and over to participate due to the remote and extreme nature of this trip. There are very few evacuation points, once you start you are committed to the entire journey! Check in begins at 8:00am, we depart promptly at 8:30am and return to base around 4:30pm.
