As cool as whitewater rafting and whitewater sports may be – there is a bigger reason to get out there and try it. Mother Nature is a powerful force here in Carbon County. As a professional outfitter, Jim Thorpe River Adventures specializes in using that powerful force in order to change lives. It may be just a day away from the office grind. It may be getting the family in the car and spending a day, together, in a raft. It may be the most-wild, most outdoorsy thing that someone dreams of doing. Whether the Great Outdoors changes your life for a day, or influences your life for a week or a month – this attitude adjustment is needed by so many of us.
So it is a great honor in many ways to have worked and prepared to be that outfitter that people choose to help bring some balance to their lives. It can happen in a raft, in an inflatable kayak, or on an all-terrain bicycle. The truth is change happens, no matter what… once people get out there in the sun, the fresh air, this river, and the natural majesty of the Lehigh Gorge and Carbon County.
We see the hugs, the handshakes, the smiles – and feel the positive energy pouring out of people after these raft trips. We’re using rafts, kayaks, and bikes to bring a positive change – big or small – to people that need it. And we respect that immensely. So get out there – and create a memory!
