What You'll Get
In the Victorian era, extreme sports were limited to teatime without doilies, writing witty satires about earnesty, and riding a penny-farthing down a mild incline. Today's Groupon would shock such staid sensibilities: for $22, you get a 5-mile whitewater-rafting trip guided by Huck Finn Rafting Adventures in Hot Springs (up to a $48 value).
Huck Finn Rafting Adventures leads fun-seeking aquatravelers on spirited sojourns embellished with beautiful natural scenery. During the guided 5-mile trip, gallant guides trained in river rescue, first aid, and CPR spearhead splash-filled adventures along sweeping stretches of Class II, III, 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 5 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 9-mile trip for an additional $12.
Although Huck Finn Rafting Adventures sometimes features coupons online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
