Methow River Rafting
The Methow Valley, with its open Ponderosa forests, basalt cliffs, and hot, sunny weather puts you in a land where you can almost taste the heritage of the "Old West." And, the Methow River runs right through it. Alpine Adventures offers whitewater rafting adventures or scenic family floats on different sections of this popular river located near the towns of Winthrop, Twisp, Carlton, Methow, and Pateros, WA.
Whitewater Rafting Trips
• Season: May - July
Join us on the Methow River which is well known for its consistent rapids and waves. "Hurricane Rapids," "Cinder Block Drop," and the notorious "Black Canyon" seem a distant memory by the time you reach "Another Roadside Attraction." The whitewater ends very near the mighty Columbia River, stretching 20 miles from where the rafting trip begins. It's only about half an hour from the resort towns of Chelan and Winthrop, WA.
