Running the signature "Chili Bar" course of the South Fork, guides treat passengers to 10- or 21-mile trips through Class III rapids, bordered by the natural beauty of the Lotus River Valley. All excursions include a hot barbecue lunch. As an added bonus, Groupon purchasers are eligible to receive a 10% discount on pictures.

Please note that merchant's site states 6-mile "Chili Bar" trip, but the "Chili Bar" options for this Groupon equate to a 10-mile trip due to a new location for Action Whitewater Adventures.

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.

Hubby, a friend and I went rafting Saturday and it was FANTASTIC. Best rapids I ever whitewater.. hubby fell overboard in the Tunnel rapid :-) will definitely do it again next season. Water was cold but weather was perfect. Great guide for a very exciting trip. Scenery was beautiful. we even saw a family of otters swim along the bank..really cute. Trip was worth every penny- GREAT ADVENTURE!!
