If you have never experienced a whitewater rafting trip or experienced an outdoor adventure, relax; you are like many of our guests. High Mountain Expeditions makes it easy for all our guests to have the “Time of their LIFE” no matter if you’re a whitewater rafting veteran or this is your first river rafting adventure. Here are some common questions:
Is Previous Experience Required?
Previous experience is not a requirement for any of High Mountain Expeditions adventures. All of our adventures have been designed to accommodate most anyone.
What if I Don’t Know How to Swim?
On all of our adventures you do not need to know how to swim. On all High Mountain Expeditions river trips, guests are required to where a Coast Guard approved Personal Flotation Device (PFD). Before every river trip our guides will give a detailed river safety talk and show guests how to properly swim in whitewater.
What if I'm Nervous about the Rapids?
High Mountain Expeditions offers a broad array of river rafting trips, some with large whitewater rapids and others that have much calmer rapids. High Mountain Expeditions offers a large selection of rafts so you have the choice to paddle your own inflatable kayak, ride in a raft with an experienced guide or ride with a guide on one of High Mountain Expeditions oar-rigs. Despite the fact that every High Mountain Expeditions adventure is fine for a first time experience, many of our guests prefer starting with a rafting trip that offers calmer whitewater. Before every High Mountain Expeditions adventure our guides will give a detailed river safety talk, showing guests how to properly swim in whitewater as well as showing how to brace your self in the rapids. See the list of adventures below we recommend for first time river rafting trips.
