There are many variables that make for an exciting trip during the spring- air temperature, water temperature, and water levels are ever changing in the spring. Therefore we adapt our trips to the specific conditions each day. Spring trips are usually run in our larger four to five person rafts, with an experienced guide steering your boat, but be ready to run the river in anything from individual boats up to 8 to 10 person rafts. Deep holes, reversals, and standing waves are common for this 5 mile stretch of non-stop action. The water is swift, so the miles go by fast. Be sure to bring a synthetic or wool sweaters, socks and long underwear. Wetsuits may be required and are included in the price of your trip. Additional gear is available, including insulated water shoes, gloves, and synthetic paddle jackets. Note: Due to rapidly changing water levels during the spring the Peshtigo River rafting trip can occur in any one of many different sized boats. Be prepared to be in anything from a single person raft up to an 8-10 person raft. We cannot guarantee boat sizes when you make your reservation.
