By Travelzoo Staff
Plan ahead for a summer rafting trip down the American River with an exclusive presale offer. With this Local Deal from Adventure Connection, take your pick between a trip down the Class III South Fork rapids for $79 per person (regularly $160) or brave the more advanced Class IV rapids of the North Fork for $89 per person (regularly $183).

Why we love it

  • For $79 per person, race down the rapids of the American River, regularly $160
  • This offer on the South Fork has Class III rapids and calmer stretches, geared toward beginner and intermediate rafters
  • Or, for $89 per person, take a more advanced rafting trip on the North Fork with Class IV rapids
  • Buy a voucher and book your trip now; use later this spring or summer
  • Both all-day deals include lunch and all land and river use fees

Great fun! Good guides, knowledgeable, helpful, gave us more than we had hoped for!

I was very nervous about the trip because I have trouble with my knees and am not very sure footed nor am I very stable on my feet. They helped me any way they could to make my experience fantastic!

Everyone was super friendly, the adventure lasted all day, lunch was part of the package, and it was a blast cruising down the river and rapids with our experienced and fun(ny) guide (Thanks, Derek!).
