They are located in the heart of the White Mountains, minutes from Santa’s Village and 45 minutes from North Conway Village.

The option “Paws and Paddles” is for our guests that want to pack in as much adventure into one day as humanly possible, they offer as well whitewater rafting in the morning – afternoon & their signature “Rolling Dog Sled Adventure” after your rafting trip.

MIDWEEK ERROL RAPID TRIP (Monday through Friday)

Ages 6 and up – No experience necessary – This full day, fully guided trip offers plenty of family excitement on a Class II rapid. The Errol Dam ensures a continuous flow of fun 24/7 with fluffy waves plenty big enough to splash over the bow of the boat, and get you soaked. Want to give guiding the boat a try? This is the perfect rapid for it! All you have to do is ask your guide. The eddy at the bottom of the rapid is the ideal place for jumping out of the boat to go for a swim, raft wheelies, and general laid back horse play in the beautiful river. You will take at least 4 trips down the white water using duckies as you get more comfortable. If time permits when the river trips are over, and if you are game for it, Raft NH can take a short drive 10 minutes north to try and spot a moose. No guarantees, but they almost always see one! Water, lemonade or iced tea with a hearty snack will be supplied on the river with a healthy and delicious lunch from one of the local eateries when they return to base at approximately 3 pm


WEEKEND PONTOOK DAM TRIP (Friday through Sunday)

The Pontook Dam Trip is a family friendly whitewater rafting adventure (participant must be at least 6 year old) that goes along and absolutely gorgeous stretch of river and takes you down Class II & III whitewater that can get a bit technical depending on water level. Along this trip you’ll play in the pour overs, try to catch some raft surfs, and nail a bunk of 2-3 foot breakfast waves getting everyone in the boat soaked and leaving you exhilarated on a hot day. On the way down the river you’ll see an active eagle’s nest and osprey sightings are common. Don’t be surprised if you see the occasional bear, moose, or deer along the riverbank! This is a half day trip meeting in Gorham at 8:45 am and midday. You will take two trips down the whitewater and return to base. Snacks will be served on the trip and a hearty lunch from one of the local eateries will be ready when you return.
