What to Do in North Lake Tahoe: Whitewater Rafting
Whitewater rafting trips usually last up to 3 days. Take your pick between Truckee, American, Yuba, and Carson Rivers. And it’s not as dangerous as it sounds. In fact, these kinds of activities are suitable for the whole family and all skill levels. Children as young as 4 can take part and enjoy them, too. The rapids flow and the ride are bumpy, but that’s what makes it appealing and exciting at the same time. Of special note, the East Fork Carson is recommended. It’s a 21-mile-long journey and can be enjoyed on a 2-day trip. The North Fork Tuba is also suitable both for beginners and skilled rafters.
