A Rafting Expedition in the Middle of California
Get ready for an exciting river ride up, down and through Grizzly Peak. The Grizzly River Rafting Company has converted a former mining operation into a one-stop destination for thrill-seeking rafters—and you’re invited to join in the excitement.

Walk along a tranquil path filled with towering pine trees and pass a series of ancient cliffs that reveal the fossilised remains of some of California’s Ice Age animals. See in the distance a mountain’s summit that looks like a massive muzzle and snout: it’s Grizzly Peak! Proceed over a rocky bridge flanked by a rushing waterfall and enter a timber structure—the point of departure for your wild river ride.

Adventure Awaits!
Step into a circular 8-person raft and drift along a slow river, passing the rusty remnants of an old mining company. Hear the rumblings of an 84-metre-long conveyor belt as you begin your gradual ascent of the mountain, enjoying scenic views of the surrounding area. At the top, splash down into a foaming spring and brace for a treacherous descent through Grizzly River.

Move up and down gently and then almost spin out of control in the raging current. Sail through a craggy mountain cavern and weave back and forth inside a large mine shaft, as waves curl up and over the side of the raft. Forge ahead through a wooden waterway built by miners a century ago. Experience a massive water eruption as you plummet down what seems like a perilous bedrock slope. Return to base camp, encountering gushing geysers along the way.
