There are so many reasons to want to go rafting. River life is perhaps one of last true ways to fully unplug into nature and live like humans used to – before electricity. Perhaps one of the greatest draws to go rafting is the incredible scenery you’ll pass through. You may think that you know an area well. It isn’t until you float the water that you come to understand the unique perspective a raft trip affords. There is something about the power of water, that shapes the raw and natural beauty of everything it touches.


Here at Mild to Wild we are constantly in awe and admiration of the landscapes our adventures take us to. Our guest consistently agree, and do a great job of capturing the inspiring landscapes. If you are ready to go rafting, or if you are just looking for some inspiration for your next river trip, look no further. We picked out these eight Instagram posts because we think they do a great job of appealing to the adventurer in all of us!
