Une expérience intéressante à faire à Jackson hole. En couple . Nous avons eu un super guide (xavi) qui a bien expliqué l histoire de la rivière et nous a montré des animaux et des coéquipiers sympathiques. Nous avons eu la chance d avoir un peu d eau et beaucoup de fun. Quelques rapides mais cela reste facile ( ok enfant et personnes non sportives ) par rapport aux rivières plus engagées . Pensez à prendre un vêtement de rechange votre sac restera dans le bus . Le retour est long et être mouillé n est pas agréable.

Mad River Whitewater rafting was AMAZING. From the time we checked in until the end of our trip we felt very well taken care of. A big shout to Dan, Assistant manager, who took the time to drive us to the rafting site. This was an oversight on our part but he didn't hesitate to offer a ride. We were very appreciative. Once at the river Glenn our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and made the trip a blast as well as making us feel safe. You will not regret booking with this company. Great people all around!

So much fun

What a great experience from start to finish. We had so much fun and our guide Ben was amazing. He clearly explained everything from safety to how to handle the raft. He took the time to get to know a little bit about all of us and we learned a little about him so it felt like we were all friends. Going down the river and going through the rapids was a great experience and I would do it again.
