Insider Tips

Insider Tips:

  • You are likely to get wet on this adventure, so brace yourself
  • All rafting trips run on glacial rivers, which means that the water we paddle in is recently melted ice
  • As the environment and the elements are unpredictable (often cold and always wet) overexposure will not only leave you shivering and cold, but it can easily become a serious safety concern if you sneak in unprepared. Make absolutely sure you prepare adequately against the elements
  • What to wear on the tour: thermal underwear/base layers, warm fleece top/wool sweater, fleece pants/extra long johns, thick wool socks/hiking socks (at least 1 pair)
  • Other items to bring: dry clothes for after the river trip, any necessary medications (asthma inhalers, etc.)

    It is very fun, with guides that seem to know what they are doing very well and the view of the canyon is great. It is an expensive activity though.
