Myth-Buster

Myth: Rafting is expensive Busted: There aren’t many guided outdoor activities that are as affordable as rafting – trips start at $30 for a half day. And the value is unmatched: excellent food, gear included, professional guides, shuttles and sometimes free photos from your adventure. Even multi-day expeditions are good value when you include the costs of charter flights and how much you save by not being able to spend a cent for two weeks.
