What is Whitewater Rafting?

White water rafting is negotiating river rapids and obstacles in an inflatable rubber boat with a team of up to eight people and a river guide. Rivers are graded from easy to near-impossible according to their size, the intensity of their rapids and the difficulties that may affect rescue attempts.

riverIconMenominee River

The Menominee River is unique in that its rafting season (April-October) is significantly longer than that of most other rivers. It has one of the greatest flows in the Midwest, with rapids and hydraulics similar to those of western rivers. Rapids include class I-IV. The trip begins along the beautiful Upper Pennisula, in the scenic surrounding of Niagara, WI. Careening past 200 foot high cliffs, the intensity increases through Sand Portage Rapids and culminates with a 10 foot waterfall in the legendary Piers Gorge! The Menominee River is suited for all experience levels, from beginner to advanced. The minimum age is 7 years old. Due to the size of the river's rapids, we run only 6-8 people in self bailing rafts with a guide in every boat.

Peshtigo River

Located approximately 80 miles north-west of Green Bay, people of all ages, from countries around the world have discovered the thrill, excitement and natural beauty that the Peshtigo River has to offer. Conditions on the Peshtigo are excellent for both kayaking and rafting. During the summer season when water levels are low, one can spend 'play time' in the rapids upstream, avoiding the rocky, low water, sections downstream. The Peshtigo is noted not only for its scenic beauty, but also for its very challenging Whitewater. The trip starts amidst the surrounding beauty of northeastern Wisconsin and is recognized by river enthusiasts as the longest continuous Whitewater journey in the entire Midwest.

Whitewater Rafting in Nepal

tripIconWhatever your desire for adventure, it is easy to find the perfect river in Nepal. With a wide range of difficulties from a gentle 2-day float down the Seti river, to an exhilarating 10-day adventure through the rapids of the remote Tamur and Karnali, there is an experience for everyone waiting in Nepal's famous white waters. Nepal's rivers change with the seasons. Each year, after the heavy monsoon rains the waters swell, changing the run of the rivers and the nature of the rapids. New rapids are created; others become more difficult and some simply impossible to navigate. It is important to remember that some of the white water action you are about to read about could have changed by the time you come to run the river. At WWN we are constantly monitoring changes in the rivers and their rapids, so that we can always ensure the safety of our clients and plan expeditions with precision...

Short Rafting Trips

Short trips take between one and four days and do not involve any trekking. Some of these trips involve less challenging white water and are ideally suited to first time rafters and families. Others attract experienced thrill-seekers with their world-class rapids. Short River Rafting Trips with River Detail

Long Rafting Trips

Our longer trips take you into some of Nepal’s most remote areas. Often they begin with short treks to the river. On these treks we employ local porters to carry our gear and supplies, so all you need to carry are your own personal belongings.

Many of our long trips finish close to some of our less easily accessible National Parks and Wildlife Reserves (the Karnali trip actually finishes in the Bardia National Park). So you may wish to combine your rafting trip with a safari adventure and go in search of our native tigers, bears and rhinos!
