Turtle River Rafting Company has been guiding whitewater rafting trips in Northern California on the Klamath, Trinity, Sacramento, Salmon, and Scott rivers since 1976. In the early 80′s we added the Rogue and Owyhee rivers in Oregon to our schedule.
Our home is in Mount Shasta. The rivers running through the mountains of northern California offer some of the best whitewater rafting in the western United States. This rugged, mountainous country is also treasured for its solitude, exceptional wildlife, and fabulous scenery.
From April through September, we offer 1- to 5-day river rafting vacations: one- & two-day river trips where families can take children as young as four; more adventurous multi-day wilderness journeys; and some of the wildest Class 4 and 5 whitewater in California.
We invite you to travel with us on a rafting adventure and share our love of whitewater, wilderness, and friendship. To join us this season, please call or — send us an email — and we’ll help you select the perfect whitewater rafting vacation.
