While river rafting the whitewater, you paddle thrilling rapids like Rock and Roll, Snowblind and the monstrous waves of Drunkard’s Drop.
The Wenatchee River is the most popular river rafting trip in the state of Washington for three very simple reasons: in the spring, when the river is high, the white water is awesome, in the summer when the river mellows, the weather is hot, and it can be traveled by inexperienced paddlers from 12 years on up. The Wenatchee River is the quintessential river rafting trip. . . sometimes wild, but always 'forgiving', meaning every rapid ends in a pool of calmer water.
A Leavenworth river rafting journey is a great introductory raft trip for those who know they'll enjoy the 'rollercoaster' waves that make up the Wenatchee River's whitewater rapids and who aren't afraid of getting wet. The Wenatchee River is sixteen miles long, the majority of which is flatwater, and the rapids are Class III white water that never disappoint. The Wenatchee River flows out of Tumwater Canyon and the North Cascades and through the second most visited attraction in Washington --- Leavenworth, the unique Bavarian-style village. Camping is plentiful throughout the valley with your camping options running from full-service campgrounds with electricity and showers to primitive Forest Service campgrounds with pit toilets.
