Fast Fact

Rafting trips are one of the best places to spot wildlife. Valley bottoms have some of the best habitat and are the easiest travel routes, especially in mountainous areas. Plus, the river’s currents, rapids and twists and turns disperse human sounds and smells and keep people out of view. So, it’s no surprise that you’re more likely to see wildlife on a rafting trip than on a hiking trail.
