Floating the Truckee River

Monday, July 22nd, 2013

A variety of adventure opportunities are waiting outside during your stay at Granlibakken, — from hiking and biking to the ultimate ropes course and zip line challenge at the Treetop Adventure Park — you can also add a float trip down the Truckee River to your list.

Beat the heat on the Truckee River.

Beat the heat on the Truckee River.

Enjoy a relaxing river raft adventure through tranquil stretches of scenic meadows, mountains and small rapids along the Truckee River to cool off. Pack your cooler with snacks and drinks (no Styrofoam or glass) and ride the river in solitude.

Located on River Road/Highway 89 in the heart of Tahoe City, you’ll load up your rubber boats at Truckee River Raft Company.

Ideal for family and friends, five-mile raft outings are leisurely and self-guided where rafters float along the meandering river. You’ll cruise through mellow and serene areas with picturesque mountain views and lively little rapids, punctuated with perfect swimming holes and picnic spots.

The adventure usually takes 2 to 3 hours to complete with a concession area that exits directly onto the River Ranch patio. There you can sip on cool beverages and get a sandwich or burger.

There’s a large parking lot across from the River Ranch called Hidden Valley where rafters can sign up and ride a free shuttle bus to the start of the trip. This is a great place to park because you take the bus in the beginning and end up at your car after the float. The shuttle bus runs from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Trips include free parking, shuttle bus, paddles, and life jackets for rafters 2 years and older. Young rafters of all ages are welcome. If you have children younger than 2 a proper life jackets for them is required.

Will you go out on a float during your stay?
