What You'll Get
|_Jump to: Reviews||River or Butler?_|
Epic voyaging need not be reserved for classical heroes who speak in dactylic hexameter. Just as Odysseus slayed the hurricane from aboard his inflatable raft, you too can conquer vengeful waters with today’s Groupon to Gold Rush Whitewater Rafting. For just $50, you’ll go on a heart-pumping, rapid-raging tour of the South Fork of the American River (44% off a $90 value).
Today, gold is commonly known as non-fool’s gold, spending metal, or decoration for my braces. But back in the day when gold was first discovered in America, it was simply known as gold. The site of that discovery, the American River, is where Gold Rush’s lower river tour takes place. The adventure is crowded with Class II and III rapids to invigorate your senses, challenge your strength, and make it very difficult to find gold. Depending on the time of year and the water flow, you’ll spend three or four adrenaline-fueled hours on the wild waters. Like the Sirens’ song, Class III rapids with sweet-sounding names such as Satan’s Cesspool and Hospital Bar will call out to you, threatening devastation on the rocks. Luckily, Gold Rush’s expertly trained river guides will paddle and steer you through the chaotic churning of Charybdis with the gods on their side.
Located 130 miles from San Francisco in Lotus, California, Gold Rush Whitewater Rafting isn’t too far to travel for a lasting adventure. Though whitewater rafting season ends with all running water migrating back to Canada at the end of September, your Groupon is valid for an entire year, so you can look forward to hitting the river with friends next season. Book your tour, available Sunday through Friday, and get your Groupon with a group of wild whitewater warriors.

Tym will hook up with the fun…all you have to do is paddle! – Danny B. > * There is an independent kayak-er who takes really good action photos on the different level peaks of the rafting and will give a good deal for a CD. – Orlando P.
