America has always been the most extreme country, from the Boston Tea Punchings to having the first man swear on the moon. We hold this shredding guitar solo to be self-evident with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a whitewater-rafting tour for two people from Northwood's Adventure in Vulcan (a $105.90 value).

Northwood's Adventure's experienced instructors guide two eight-passenger rafts through Class IV rapids on three-hour expeditions floating atop the scenic Menominee River. Trips start with a lesson in proper paddling, building up rapport amongst co-raftsmen before heading out into the currents of Class I and II rapids set against a backdrop as awe-inspiring as haikus written by a skywriter. Rafters meander down the river until they hit the gorge, where passengers climb out of water vessels for a quick hike to get an aerial view of the upcoming rapids. Boats then navigate through the Class IV rapids, enjoying the bouncy ride while little ones and timid paddlers watch from above. All paddlers then reconvene for the final stretch of river, enjoying pristine views of the winding water and possible bald eagle sightings that don't require wearing American-flag pants as bait. Rides conclude with passage over the "terminal surfer," where instructors jettison adventure-seekers over a surf hole to finish off an adrenaline-rush-filled day.

Northwoods Adventures

A bright yellow inflatable raft splashes down the rushing waters of the Menominee River, its helmet-clad passengers hooting victoriously as they speed past banks dappled with lush trees and rock faces. Catering to seasoned outdoor enthusiasts and beginner rafters alike, The rafting experts at Northwoods Adventures strive to grant their clients a chance to experience the splash-laden rush via excursions in northeastern Wisconsin and Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Their commitment to adventure is second only to the company's dedication to safety, exemplified in everything from its high-quality equipment to the team of meticulously selected guides. Trained as naturalists, medics, rescuers, and interpreters, each was considered for a place on staff only after successfully completing 600 hours of training and translating War and Peace into conversational moose. Tours continue throughout the year to scenic locales, which include a sunset cruise of Piers Gorge and an adrenaline-packed jaunt down the Sturgeon River.
