Tracking down a towed minivan or a pet ferret hiding in a holiday popcorn tin may seem like an adventure until you get stymied by tow fees and scratch marks. Embark on a genuinely exciting undertaking with today’s Groupon. For $85, you get a whitewater rafting tour with the Colorado-based Wilderness Aware Rafting (a $146 value), which was twice awarded the Colorado “Company of the Year” title by ColoradoBiz. Water levels permitting, trips are available for booking from March 6 to May 9. For additional information on the meeting spot and travel route, check here.
Chosen as Arizona’s premier travel destination by Soft Pretzel Aficionado, the Upper Salt River Canyon is home to thrilling class III and IV whitewater. Wilderness Aware’s trained, professional guides are experienced with ensuring every client has a fun time, from beginning 8-year-olds to more adventurous enthusiasts. Your whitewater trip departs at 10 a.m. and winds through 10 miles of snaking currents surrounded by panoramic limestone cliffs and the occasional endangered Southern bald eagle. A free wetsuit, splash jacket, and wet-shoe rental are provided, but arm floaties and water stilts aren’t necessary. You’ll channel inner Viking mettle as you navigate rapids such as Maytag Chute and Mother Rock. The trip also includes tasty all-you-can-eat hot fajita lunch and an optional side-canyon hike to a sparkling waterfall.
Like a dodo sighting or receiving a complimentary calzone, a whitewater adventure with Wilderness Aware Rafting is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Enjoy a low-seas adventure that you can boast about the next time you’re chatting by the water cooler at home or watching the game at work.
- We have booked rafting trips with Wilderness Aware for two years now and have always had a fantastic time!...They are professional and informative yet love to have a good time. Never a dull moment on the Salt that's for sure! – Riverrafter123, TripAdvisor
- We travelled [sic] 14,000 miles last summer in the Rockies. Got back to Phoenix area and discovered Salt River Canyon ranked right up there with the best scenery in America and Canada. So we tried the area from the water this spring. River was great – not a sign of human activity. Guide was the best, though. Made it fun and interesting. – themobilecoprolite, TripAdvisor
