Just 15 minutes from Leavenworth, WA, the Wenatchee River will accommodate most everyone and is a Washington State favorite. Whether you’re a skittish first timer or an experienced whitewater pro, you'll love rafting the Wenatchee River – it’s one of the Top 10 white water river rafting trips in the country!
This version of our Wenatchee River Rafting trip is a full day tour, and includes our Choice Top Sirloin Steak BBQ and covers up to 17 miles on the Wenatchee River. Including the BBQ, this trip is usually about 4-5 hours long (depending on water levels).
Not much time? - the "Express" version of our Wenatchee River rafting trip is for you! On this trip, we take you through the most action-packed part of our full trip, the white water "highlights". Our express trip covers 10 miles. The trip is about 2 hours long, depending on the water level. Express trips do not include the Steak BBQ.
Two days, two rivers, twice the fun! The best way to experience the Wenatchee and Methow rivers is all in one weekend. After spending day one on the Wenatchee River, and enjoying our delicious Steak BBQ, you’ll have the rest of the afternoon to explore the surrounding towns of the Leavenworth, Lake Chelan, or the beautiful Columbia River Valley. Make your way up to the Methow River and spend the evening relaxing on the river’s edge at Lightning Pine Resort where your campsite will be waiting.
We'll meet you in the heart of Leavenworth at the Okanogan Tasting Room, just below Starbucks. From there your whitewater adventure embarks from Dryden dam, between Cashmere and Leavenworth. The excitement begins immediately as you launch directly into Upper Gorilla and Sharkstooth, filled with lots of fun waves. Soon you'll be upon Drunkarsds Drop, a great wall of green and white water with waves up to 16 feet high!
Then you'll head out into the wineries of the Wenatchee River Valley, featuring some classic Eastern Washington reds as well as traditional German grapes in the spirit of Leavenworth. We will be tasting many wines along the way, as we tour 3 different wineries.
If you want to get away from it all and enjoy some great whitewater on the hot side of the state then we suggest the Methow River for your rafting trip. The Methow River is located in the heart of Okanogan County, surrounded by apple and pear orchards and just off the Cascade Loop. Winthrop and Lake Chelan are short distances away. The Methow River is a big water river with huge roller coaster waves.
This is our standard trip on the Methow River, covering 15 miles. There’s lots of great camping and usually plenty of hot, dry, Eastern Washington sunshine. If you love the Wenatchee, you’ll love the Methow. Both rivers have huge waves and holes, and lots of excitement!
When the late summer heat starts to dry up the rest of Washington State’s rivers, the dam at Rimrock Lake is opened and the Tieton River becomes the fastest (and warmest!) river in the state. This is a non-stop action-packed river and our longest river rafting trip (and our Tieton trips are longer than any other outfitter)! Located on the sunny, eastern side of White Pass, this river is just 30 minutes outside of Yakima. Come enjoy the last whitewater run of the season!
