Planning a white water rafting trip, either for a few friends or a huge family reunion, can be quite the undertaking. Here are some questions to ask yourself as you start to layout plans for your adventure!

When are you looking to go on your trip?
Rafting seasons are different everywhere you go!  

Where are you planning on going?
Don’t know? We can help you decide!

What is the length of the trip?
There are options from a few hours to multiple days. Overnight trips can be relaxing and fun, just make sure it is something everyone going with you would be up for. You can ask a trip consultant about food options as well as camping equipment.

What are the ages in your group?
Many rivers have age restrictions for the safety of all rafters.

What activities do you want to experience?
Rafting, Jeeping, Train, Mesa Verde, anything and everything? A rafting trip can be combined with lots of options and generally these packages are discounted!

What is the adventure level of your group?
Mild, Intermediate, Wild, or somewhere in between?

What is the size of your group?
Party of 2, family of 10, or a school group of 200? There are options for all!

Where you are coming from and where you are heading to?
This information can be used to incorporate a rafting trip into your already scheduled vacation.

Keep in mind, you do not need to know which river and what trip option you want before calling Mild to Wild. Trip consultants are standing by year round tohelp you figure out what trip is best for you and your group!
