The Deal

  • $146 for a full-day, 18-mile Middle Fork wilderness rafting trip with gourmet lunch for one adult, valid Monday–Friday ($239 value)

This 18-mile, pristine wilderness river trip is one of California’s most popular class 4 rivers. A step up from its little sister, the South Fork, it is perfect for rafters who have completed the South Fork and are looking for the next step or beginners who are looking for a little more of a thrill. This section of river takes you into the Gold country’s vast wilderness with plenty of Gold-Rush history and wildlife. Even out in the wild, rafters will be provided with a Gourmet Deli lunch for sustenance throughout the trip. With spectacular pool drop rapids like “Tunnel Chute”, “Kanaka Falls”, and “Chunder Falls” this section of river is ideal for thrill seekers of all ages.

Action Whitewater Adventures

To Action Whitewater Adventures' guides, setting is everything. During their full-day excursions, guides and groups mounted in rafts battle Class III and IV rapids just to make their way to a gourmet deli lunch set against the backdrop of the lush Lotus River Valley. Of course, they might argue the fun part is getting there.

They lead excursions down both the South and Middle Forks of the American River, some of the most popular rafting waters in the nation. On the South Fork, they conduct the "Chili Bar" run, a trip that covers up to 21 miles favored for its rough-and-tumble class III rapids and stellar countryside. The Middle Fork provides even rougher-and-tumbler Class IV rapids, the 18-mile journey punctuated by clear-flowing stretches populated by trout and adorable baby Poseidons.

Great experience! Really fun and well trainedbguides. We did the Gorge, which only really got intense after lunch. They do a good job of easing you in but I wish I'd picked a little higher intensity - will definitely go back for something more challenging and full of adrenaline. Plenty of food for lunch, basic sandwiches and chips but there was plenty of it. I would highly reccomend it!
