About This Experience

General Information hide

Experience the thrills and spills of whitewater rafting on a ten mile adventure along Washington’s Wenatchee River, before enjoying a fantastic wine tasting tour of the Wenatchee Valley’s best wineries.

This full day experience gift begins about two and a half hours east of Seattle with a friendly greeting upon arrival at the rafting center in Leavenworth. Once the group is ready, you’ll be escorted to the rafting launch site. Outfitted with all of your gear, you’ll head straight on to the wild waters of the Wenatchee where you’ll tackle the famous 'Upper Gorilla’ and 'Shark’s Tooth’ falls as well as the white water rapids of the unforgettable 'Drunkards Drop’! This section of the river is very forgiving and is suitable for rafters of all abilities, but prepare to get very wet! Your 10 mile rafting adventure will finish in the beautiful Riverside Park in Cashmere, where you can change into dry clothes and sit down to enjoy a well-earned Sirloin Steak BBQ lunch.

Next, its time to join your Guide for a tour of three outstanding local wineries. At each venue you’ll have a chance to sip and sample some of Eastern Washington’s best wines, and purchase a bottle or two to take home. River rafting is one of the most exhilarating watersports around and makes for a thrilling adventure gift for any adrenaline junkie…but combine this with a wonderful wine tasting tour, and you are on to a winner!
