Wenatchee River Rafting
River rafting in the Bavarian Town of Leavenworth offers diverse scenery with excellent class III whitewater rafting on the main Wenatchee and a gorgeous scenic float on the Icicle River with breathtaking views of the Enchantments, Sleeping Lady, and Icicle Ridge.
• Season: April - August
Our guides can make your trip as wild or mild as you like. This type of river is characterized by what we call a drop and pool river: great rapids like "Boulder Bend", "Rock n' Roll", "Drunkards Drop", "Rodeo", and "Snow Blind". Corporate groups, families and friends come back year after year for the combination of great water, warm temperatures, and lots of sunshine.
