For $22, today's deal gets you a half-day whitewater-rafting trip, guided by Huck Finn Rafting Adventures in Hot Springs, North Carolina (a $48 value). Gallant guides trained in river rescue, first aid, and CPR spearhead splash-filled adventures along sweeping stretches of Class I, II, and III rapids on the French Broad River in Pisgah National Forest. Armed with a paddle, life jacket, and a trout-like sense of nautical navigation, rafters will crash through cresting waves, taming five miles of unruly river rapids. On lazier stretches, soak in Pisgah's postcard-perfect panoramas of Appalachian hilltops, power up on complimentary snacks, and recite Jürgen Prochnow's lines from Das Boot. No experience is necessary for this three-hour trip, and children ages 8 and older can join in on the fun, as long as they promise not to show off with fancy paddle work and esoteric river-algae trivia. Groupon customers also have the option of upgrading to a full-day trip for an additional $25.
