Wilderness Whitewater Rafting in Washington's National Forests
A Klickitat River rafting trip combines the continuous thrill of never-ending class II-class III rapids with the striking beauty of deep wilderness. This whitewater rafting trip begins on the eastern flank of the volcanic Mt. Adams, as glacial snowfields melt to fill the river during warmer spring months.
While the Klickitat raft trip is one of the longest in the area, the continuous class II-III whitewater keeps the action going all day long. Like a conveyor belt winding through paradise, the Klickitat River exposes rafting guests to thick pine forests, steep canyons, basalt cliffs, twisted lava formations and scrub oak forests. One of the only ways to experience true Pacific Northwest wilderness, this white water raft trip gets you away from the roads and crowds in other popular recreation destinations within Gifford Pinchot National Forest.
The Wild and Scenic Act helps preserve the Klickitat River from further development. Downstream from our run is one of only two active Native American dip-net fisheries. The Yakama Native Americans have thrived along the Klickitat River for centuries, using its clean and fresh water for fishing and travel. The land maintains this sense of survival, remaining untouched. Our put-in and take-out will be the only access points you will see on your day of white water rafting.
In this full day Washington rafting trip, your group will enjoy a delicious lunch on the banks of the river halfway down the Klickitat River. Stopping to take in the surrounding epic views and enjoy conversation with your professional river guides makes your experience that much richer.
Your guides at Wet Planet recomend this river rafting trip for wilderness enthusiasts and action-seeking adventurers. With continuous whitewater rapids all day long set in a remote wilderness area, the Klickitat white water raft trip has something for everyone.
