06 Aug 11 Outstanding Family Value!
My daughter asked for a rafting trip to celebrate her 15th birthday, and we’re all glad she did – our Northern Outdoors experience exceeded our expectations!
We arrived the afternoon prior to our trip and thoroughly enjoyed the facilities (pool, hot tub, pub & brewery) before retiring for a restful evening in our spacious 4-person cabin tent.
Our guide Blaise was outstanding, and set the raft up for a great ride through every feature the river offered. Lunch was perfect – as first outfitter on the river Northern Outdoors has the best lunch spot by a long shot!
The perfect weather and 5000 cfs flow made for an incredible family experience that completely satisfied my family of 4 – who came into the trip ranging from "very nervous" to "bring it on". There are not many adventure experiences out there that have the "range" to accomplish that.
The entire package was a great value, and one of the most satisfying family adventures we have ever had (there have been many). My 17-year old son now wants to take the training course and work as a guide while in college.
Thank you, Northern Outdoors – we will be back, bringing friends!
