Truckee River Rafting

The Truckee River Rafting trip floats you through tranquil stretches of scenic meadows, mountains and small rapids.

You begin your leisurely float in Tahoe City, along a peaceful stretch of the Truckee River, ending at the River Ranch Restaurant where you can end the trip with a delicious meal. Truckee River Rafting is a self guided raft trip offering commercial grade rafts (2, 4, 6, 8, and 10 person rafts) to spend the day on the river.
