You can start at Leavenworth, a Bavarian-style village in the Cascade Mountains, which boasts 300 days of sunshine, fun waves, and amazing mountain scenery. Most waves are created by sandstone ledges, ensuring lots of dramatic ups and downs while you raft.

Other whitewater rafting locations include White Salmon, Tieton, Sauk and Green rivers. The season may differ at various locations but generally it starts in early April and ends in mid August. At some locations, like Tieton river, rafting is available in September.
