There’s Nothing Better Than Northern California’s Natural Lazy River On A Summer’s Day

As spring turns to summer and we say goodbye to those chilly mornings and afternoons for a few months, it’s time to start planning for the next season’s adventures. We have plenty of fun swimming holes here in Northern California, but why go for a dip when you can float along the incredible Russian River instead?

Here’s a brief video that shows how much fun a river float like this can be. We don’t know who Alexis is, but I bet her birthday was a blast!

And here’s one more family friendly experience that makes this adventure look like so much fun:

This video gives you a little preview of some of the choppier sections of the river. Remember, there’s no shame in walking around these if they look a little too intense!

Here’s a few local businesses where you can rent equipment and get all the info. A few of them also offer paddling lessons for beginners and run a shuttle so you don’t have to bring two cars:
