They say it's a Splash!  

Had such a fun day rafting main fork of the payette. Our guide Savvy was awesome to our son with special needs and our two young daughters. Bear River made the experience very memorable and we hope to make this a yearly tradition.

We had an amazing time rafting with Bear valley! Ryan and TJ were the best guides, they made the trip down the Payette so much fun. Both made sure everyone was safe but having fun as well. Highly recommend this company, will definitely be back!
