Tieton River Whitewater Rafting 

Calling all thrill seekers

On this Class 3-4 river, you will experience action packed waves and raging rapids! 

The Tieton is the fastest moving river in Washington and is beloved by both our guides and clients alike! The Tieton is a great river for those looking for a more "technical" whitewater experience!  

Rugged volcanic basalt cliffs line both sides of this mountain canyon, and the sun shines bright in these dry and arid hills. 

* This river is NOT located in Leavenworth. It is located approximately 2 hours away. Please see the map below for driving instructions. 


We take children 10 and up on these rafting trips 

How it works:

Your trip will start at our meeting location on Tieton Reservoir Road, located approximately 10 minutes east of Rimrock Lake.


From there our river guides will outfit you in proper rafting gear, and give a brief safety orientation. You will then be put on boats as we launch directly from our meeting location!  

Once on the water, you will raft your way down to our destination point about 15 miles downriver, taking approximately two hours, depending on river conditions.  From there we will shuttle you back up to the meeting location.

Prepare to get wet and have a great time!

  • Professional River Guides 

  • PFDs - Coast Guard Approved (i.e. life jacket)
