Tarka's Whitewater Journey - Rivers In Wisconsin | Wisconsin Rafting | Whitewater Rafting

Wisconsin (USA)


Experience the isolation and beauty of the wilderness in your own backyard! Join Tarka's Whitewater Journey as we float through Estabrook, Hubbard and River Park. The undeveloped, heavily wooded shoreline obscures the sights of the city leaving the feeling of being far away in the Northwoods. Our self bailing rafts hold 6-8 people. Tarka's Whitewater will provide life jackets, helmets and paddles. This trip along the Milwaukee River on calm water (level 1 or 2) is suitable for people with no experience as well as more advanced rafters. The minimum age is 6 years.


The Menominee River is unique in that its rafting season (April-October) is significantly longer than that of most other rivers. It has one of the greatest flows in the Midwest, with rapids and hydraulics similar to those of western rivers. Rapids include class I-IV. The trip begins along the beautiful Upper Pennisula, in the scenic surrounding of Niagara, WI. Careening past 200 foot high cliffs, the intensity increases through Sand Portage Rapids and culminates with a 10 foot waterfall in the legendary Piers Gorge! The Menominee River is suited for all experience levels, from beginner to advanced. The minimum age is 12 years old. Due to the size of the river's rapids, we run only 6-7 people in self bailing rafts with a guide in every boat.


Located approximately 80 miles north-west of Green Bay, people of all ages, from countries around the world have discovered the thrill, excitement and natural beauty that the Peshtigo River has to offer. Conditions on the Peshtigo are excellent for both kayaking and rafting. During the summer season when water levels are low, one can spend 'play time' in the rapids upstream, avoiding the rocky, low water, sections downstream. The Peshtigo is noted not only for its scenic beauty, but also for its very challenging Whitewater. The trip starts amidst the surrounding beauty of northeastern Wisconsin and is recognized by river enthusiasts as the longest continuous Whitewater journey in the entire Midwest.
