Truckee River Rafting offers self-guided raft trips on the beautiful Truckee River, from Tahoe City, California. Enjoy a leisurely and casual float from Tahoe City down a 5 mile stretch of the Truckee River to the River Ranch Pond. It's tons of fun for all ages and a great family-together experience! Aboard a super durable, professional raft, you'll float through peaceful, quiet stretches, exciting rapids, and a variety of riffles and pools. The scenery is spectacular and includes open meadows, timbered mountain slopes and shoreside onlookers.
