WENATCHEE RIVER - LEAVENWORTH
WASHINGTON'S MOST POPULAR RAFT TRIP
The Wenatchee River is the most popular river rafting trip in the state of Washington for a few very simple reasons: in the spring, when the river is high, the white water is awesome and the waves can be towering. In the summer when the river mellows, the weather is hot, the rapids are still fun and it can be traveled by inexperienced paddlers from 7 years on up. (12 years and up during High Water Season.)
A Leavenworth river rafting journey is a great introductory raft trip for those who know they'll enjoy the 'rollercoaster' waves that make up the Wenatchee River's rapids and who aren't afraid of getting wet. The Wenatchee River is fourteen miles long, the majority of which is flat water, and the rapids are Class III white water that never disappoint. The Wenatchee River flows out of Tumwater Canyon and the North Cascades and through the second most visited attraction in Washington--Leavenworth, the unique Bavarian-style village. Camping is plentiful throughout the valley with options running from full-service campgrounds with electricity and showers to primitive Forest Service campgrounds with pit toilets.
