Take a leisurely float along a peaceful stretch of the Truckee River.  Start just below Fanny Bridge, the only outlet of Lake Tahoe, and end at the River Ranch Restaurant. Operators offer a self-guided raft trip, which takes a leisurely 2-3 hours.

Raft rentals and shuttle service is available through Truckee River Raft Co. or Truckee River Rafting.

Looking for something a little more exciting? Check out Tahoe Whitewater Tours, which offers a more exciting class III whiteater run further down the Truckee River, as well as day trips to Carson River and American River.
