You Only Live Once: Wenatchee River Rafting in Leavenworth
Thanks to the Wenatchee and other surrounding waterways, Leavenworth has become a premier destination for river rafting in Washington. Imagine you and your rafting crew jostling down the Wenatchee, up and over massive waves as you smash into disintegrating walls of water on your way to Cashmere, some 16 miles away. This section of the Wenatchee River is characterized by class II and III rapids, beautiful orchards, rolling foothills, and rugged bluffs. Due to the rain and melting snowpack, spring is the most intense time of the year for river rafting in Leavenworth. However, summertime is more relaxed and perfect for beginners and children. With over 300 days of sunshine each year, it’s no surprise that river rafting in Leavenworth is one of the most popular Washington State summer vacation ideas.
Blue Sky Outfitters is one of the top-rated river rafting operations in the valley. Warm temperatures coupled with a raging river are just two factors that make the Wenatchee such a renowned trip, and Blue Sky is here to guide the way! This elite outfitter will supply optional wetsuits, life jackets, water shoes, and, of course, paddles as part of the trip fee. Once the guides go over a few safety precautions and answer questions, you’ll be ready to take the ride of your life.
Once you’re in the raft, be prepared to experience the best of both worlds with relatively smooth rafting, and turbulent waters all rolled into one exciting adventure. At the end of the trip, you’ll be treated to a riverside cuisine consisting of top sirloin steak (vegetarian options available), potato salad, corn on the cob, bread roll, and ice water. If you think that’s a lot, don’t worry. You’re bound to work up an appetite.
