Experience Winter in Indian River, MI

Experience the breathtaking beauty and solitude of winter, while floating beneath a canopy of cedars and pines covered with freshly fallen snow. Since 2001, our knowledgeable staff has been guiding Rafts down the crystal-clear Sturgeon River on a fun and narrative 1½ hr trip, offering an excellent opportunity to see wildlife in their natural habitat. We can accommodate groups of up to 6 people in our Rafts that are spacious, relaxing, and a great “team booster”.

Most importantly, our rafts do not tip over- this is a dry trip! In the winter, our Raft trips are Guided Only, to ensure the highest safety standards. All equipment is U.S. Coast Guard approved and safety-inspected, and Type III Lifejackets are required to be worn by all participants. No experience is necessary, but participation is required (this involves TEAMWORK!). A truly unique trip with memories to last a lifetime!

Rates include all equipment, shuttle service, and guide. No experience necessary, just warm clothes and a camera!

*8 adults maximum per Raft, 12 adults maximum at a time. Occasionally we can take groups with more than 12 people if our 3rd Rafting Guide is available. If you have more than 12 people in your group, you could easily split the group into 2 with one half rafting while the other half snowshoes; everyone could then meet for lunch and switch activities.
