Choose Between Two Options

  • $79 for a one-day rafting trip and lunch (up to a $161 value)
  • $199 for a two-day rafting trip and wine tasting (up to a $401 value)

The two-day excursion begins when groups are chauffeured to up to five of the award-winning wineries in the El Dorado region. Sommeliers grant sips of red wine and samples. The next morning after breakfast, rafters receive a detailed orientation and safety talk on the shores of the river before tackling Class III intermediate rapids. After completing the rafting trip, groups return to camp for a barbecue or deli-style lunch on the banks. This trip includes a total of four meals. Tour-goers should meet at 6500 Highway 49 in Lotus at 9 a.m. on the morning of their trip, though they can opt to arrive the night before if desired (mention at booking).

One-day trips travel along the south fork of the American River and include lunch. Customers have two options for their rafting adventure: The Gorge Run, which is 13 miles long, or the Chili Bar Run, which is 11 miles long. The Gorge Run meets at 6500 Highway 49 in Coloma at 9:45 a.m., and the Chili Bar Run meets at 8:30 a.m.

Adventure Connection

The founders of Adventure Connection believe in magic. Not the trickery of the stage or spells cast by mysterious neighbors, but of the spiritual, environmental, and economic boons of the rivers they have spent their lives traversing. More than 25 years ago, a group of believers came together to share their love and passion for the rivers of California, building a company that combines whitewater rafting, wine tasting, and camping along the waterways they love.

Over the course of the last two decades, the staff has guided boats through the rapids of the American, Kaweah, and Tuolumne Rivers, coasting through mild ripples or white-knuckling class V rapids. Groups often leave the rafts behind to explore the scenic countryside and renowned wineries of the surrounding El Dorado region or to pitch tents and sleep under the stars.
