Kyburz Run

For thrill seekers, adrenaline junkies and those who are looking for an adventure like no other consider the heart pumping excursion down the Kyburz Run on the South Fork of the American River. This steep non stop action tour begins off of Echo Summit along highway 50 near Kyburz, CA. High in elevation the river cascades down long technical rapids, over small vertical drops, and around house sized granite boulders, all while granite domed peaks peer down from above. As captivating as the scenery may be, your full attention will be dedicated to the river as your guide calls out commands maneuvering downstream. This all day run is by far our most exciting adrenaline filled trip. As you travel down this 13 mile section, a new invigorating sense of adventure will keep your focus, clearing the mind of any other thought that may come. If you’re looking for the time of your life, look no further. After completing a day on this stretch of the America River you will have the confidence to do anything!

Tahoe Whitewater guides are committed to showing the High Adventure Guest the wildest ride available on the Kyburz Run. So be ready to get wet! The High Adventure Trips require a team effort; guests will be expected to exert high physical energy. If you are afraid to get wet, this is not the adventure for you.
