At Tahoe Whitewater Tours we want to find you the best adventure possible. Everyone’s adventure needs are different, so the best river adventure we offer is the one that meets your needs and more. We have grouped our rivers based on length (half day, full day, or multi-day), and the class (which describes the level of difficulty). So when asking yourself “Which river is the best for me”, consider how much time you have to spend, as well as ability level and adventurous nature of your group. Let us help you find the perfect trip for you.
