About 2 year(s) ago by Donner Lake Village

Splash away the heat rafting the Truckee River with Truckee River Rafting! Have a blast with the family rowing in tranquil waters before bouncing through five sets of rapids! Voted North Lake Tahoe & Truckee's BEST Raft Company for four years in a row, Truckee River Rafting has everything your family needs for an epic day on the river. 

Get Your Float On

This family owned and operated business has been getting its float on since 1973 and prides itself on friendly customer service. Their fun-filled adventure lasts between 2-3 hours starting in Tahoe City and ending at the River Ranch. Rafts seat between 2-10 people creating the ideal experience for any size family. It's fun for all ages and even the dog can come in the raft! Dogs under 50 lbs are allowed, and they're free so bring them with you.

Reservations are highly recommended and open through August 16, 2021! Cost is $60 per adult, $35 per child (ages 6-12), and kids 2-5 years old are free! All pricing includes shuttle bus, raft, paddle and life jacket. Group pricing is also available. Social distancing restrictions are in place and taken seriously. Due to the concern of the health and safety of rafters, Saturday hours of operation are limited to 8:30AM to 12:30PM. All rafters must be off the Truckee River by 4PM. Make your rafting plans far in advance if possible!

Bring your snacks, drinks and furry friends!

Pack a small, soft cooler with snacks and drinks. Alcohol is permitted but keep the glass bottles and Styrofoam coolers at home. Lockers are available to store your valuables and towels as they're bound to get wet on the water. Strap on your water shoes or bring your flip flops as shoes are mandatory. Enjoy your snacks in the raft as there are portable restrooms about every mile on the riverbank in case anyone needs to hop out.

Riverman Souvenirs

After an epic day on the Truckee River, grab a souvenir photo and a Riverman t-shirt to mark an exciting and memorable day on the water. Grab a bite to eat at the River Ranch or head to the River Grill in Tahoe City for dinner and drinks. Escape the heat this summer and get your float on with Truckee River Rafting in North Lake Tahoe!
