The majority of overnight river rafting trips will include an overnight camp rather than a plush hotel! This will probably be a truly wonderful under the stars experience. Be careful when you are booking your trip that you are sure about the overnight accommodation. If you are used to your home comforts you may be disappointed in the standards on offer. On some occasions, this may be a very makeshift camp. For the majority of people this is all part of the adventure and a night under the stars with a fire for cooking and heating is as exciting as the rafting experience. Also check with the outfitter regarding children. Some trips are for adults only and some will be able to cater for youngsters. Make sure that you have confirmed the ages of all the members of your party. There is nothing worse than a disappointed 9-year-old being told that you have to be 10. Often, there is no margin for negotiation for this as the outfitter may well be tied due to insurance reasons.
Extreme sports vacations are becoming increasingly popular and with the Internet being more readily available it is also easier than ever to find the ideal short break or vacation. You will find that you can source trips that you would have otherwise never discovered and there is always something to catch your eye. If you are keen on extreme sports and have tried water rafting, it may be that you would be interested in some of the overnight river rafting trips that are on offer. This really is an ideal way for the energetic thrill seeker to have a great time and burn off some of that excess energy. However, do not think that all river rafting has to involve white water. There are many softer options which will be much more tranquil and laid back. Drifting down the river is a beautiful way to make the most of your vacation time.
