White Water Rafting in Washington – Six Great River Trips
Washington is known for its breathtaking scenery, from wetland estuaries to the desert. For those visiting or residing in Washington state, there is an abundance of outdoor activities and adventures. White water rafting is one of the top outdoor activities in Washington, especially because it’s great even when it’s raining (you’re already wet anyways)!
Located on the banks of the White Salmon River in Washington, we offer several great rafting trips for those seeking outdoor adventure. These trips are offered April through September.

The White Salmon River
Difficulty: III-IV | April – September | Half-Day and Full-Day Trips
The White Salmon is great for beginners and advanced rafters alike. Previously a lava tube, the White Salmon River runs through carved-out basalt canyons before finally opening up into a sunny, forested valley. During the second half of the season, we move to our own private put-in 2 miles upstream from the commonly used public put-into get even more secluded beauty and adventure into your experience.

Difficulty: III | April – May
The Klickitat, tucked deep into the Washington wilderness, features twisted lava formations, basalt cliffs, and steep canyon topped with non-stop class II and II rapids, making for a fun and beautiful river trip. The Klickitat white water rafting trip is also one of the longest trips in this area of Washington state. Book a Trip on the Klickitat River
Difficulty: IV – V (previous experience required | April – May
The Wind River is the adventure of a lifetime! It carves through beautiful canyons and boulder gardens, providing exhilarating class IV and V rapids the whole way (previous experience required). For Wind River trips, we meet at Wet Planet’s headquarters in White Salmon, Washington. Book a Trip on the Wind River
The Tieton River
Difficulty: III+ | September Only
Scheduled dam releases every September means the Tieton never disappoints. Additionally, the water released from the dam is warm, which is great as the temperatures start to drop in September. Class III+ rollercoaster rapids provide the ultimate way to enjoy the best of Washington white water rafting. Our private meeting point for Tieton River trips is at our basecamp near Yakima, Washington. Book a Tieton River Trip
Difficulty: IV – V (previous experience required) | June Only
This more challenging portion of the White Salmon river includes nonstop class IV and V rapids, an absolute thrill only for experienced rafters. We are the only outfitter to offer this unique section of the White Salmon river. We only run the Farmlands trip for a limited portion of the summer in June.
