Some people think that summer is the ideal time for whitewater rafting in California, but that isn’t necessarily true. Sure the weather is good during the summer, but the sun can be quite hot and you’ll get bitten by numerous bugs in your camp. The fall however, is a great alternative if you aren’t taking a summer trip to California, but rather heading out when school goes back into session for a more quiet vacation.
The fall weather in California is gorgeous, with skies mostly clear and temperatures in the 70s. The rivers are just as exciting in the fall as in summer, so don’t think you won’t be getting the same kind of adventure! And it’s a bit quieter since less people are taking trips in the fall, as opposed to the cliched summer vacation. You’ll find a lot less kids in the area too, as they’ll all be in school. It’s really nice if you are going on a trip with only adults.
So take the trip now and enjoy whitewater rafting in California in these cooler months. It’ll be different but still just as exciting as a summer trip. You still have plenty of time to book, so what are you waiting for?
