Ride the Rapids

Spring is just around the corner which means that it’s finally getting warm enough to do things outside. You can ride your bike, walk the dog or play at the park. But if you ask me, those things are a little too boring. I need something more exciting. One thing that I’ve always wanted to do, and can do now that the weather is starting to warm up is go white water rafting. For today’s item: you are to go white water rafting before you die.

Now in order to go white water rafting you need a river and a company to go with, especially if you’ve never done this before. When choosing which kind of trip you want to go on, you need to think about what kind of experience you want to get out of this. Are you wanting to go just for a ride and not really get wet? Then you want to find a river that has a low difficulty, such as a one or two. But if you ask me, that’s boring. Instead you should go for a more thrilling ride and try a river with a difficulty around 3 or 4.

Rafting season starts in May, but during the summer is their busy season so if you do decide to go during this time, book ahead of time. Also many places offer deals for large groups. So take a bunch of friends with you and experience the river like never before.

Some places that offer rafting trips are the Ottawa River, Jasper National Park, Kicking Horse River in B.C., and Cairns, Australia
