Tieton River Rafting in Leavenworth, WA
Speed, thrills, and spills await you when you try out Tieton River rafting. Schedule a morning or afternoon with our whitewater tour group in Leavenworth, Washington, and feel the rush. When you take a tour down the scenic Tieton River, you get to enjoy the outdoors, while also experiencing exhilarating moments of Nature’s fury. Wild fun awaits you downstream--let our river guides show you all of the exciting twists and turns.

September Is the Time to Challenge the Tieton
Catch excitement within a limited time! The Tieton River is at its swiftest during the month of September, when the floodgates of Rimrock Lake open. As a result, the mostly calm river transforms into a fast and furious course. During this month, the Tieton River boasts Class 3 and 4 rapids. Water movement that is rated in these tiers is widely known for high speeds and bumpy rides. In other words, Mother Nature has set up a mean coaster for rafters to challenge.

Are you and your friends brave enough to conquer what the mighty Tieton has to offer? Test your skills and let our experienced river guides show you the way. Whether you’re a first-timer or a regular thrill seeker, we let you experience the river to the fullest. Every raft group is provided the proper equipment--including safety gear. On top of that, a seasoned guide will be with your group throughout the trip. Each of our guides is thoroughly trained and experienced in whitewater rafting, and we also make a point to teach vital techniques and calls that make your experience safe and enjoyable.

A Wealth of Entertainment near the Banks
The Tieton River area is home to lush foliage and active wildlife. Keep your eyes peeled and you will see the bounty of nature and its untamed splendor. Of course, there is so much more to see and do along river. The Tieton is also a popular location for catching touring bands and other outdoor shows. In fact, music festivals are hosted while the river valley is at its most active. Big-name sets like the Dave Matthews Band make their stops here, so you can expect a thrilling day of rafting, followed by a mellow evening. This is your location for the perfect summer send-off.

What’s Tremendous about Tieton River

- It’s the steepest river we run, with a 600-foot drop in elevation from launch to finish.
- A perfect raft adventure when other rivers are running out of rapids.
