This Whitewater Adventure In Nebraska Is An Outdoor Lover’s Dream
When we think about Nebraska rivers, we often think of calm waters – those that are perfect for tubing or swimming. But there are portions of the Niobrara National Scenic River that turn this otherwise-tame waterway into a thrilling outdoor adventure.
If you’re interested in kayaking or canoeing the rapids on the Niobrara National Scenic River, there are a number of outfitters providing gear, transportation, and sometimes even training to get you started on your adventure. If you choose to go without an outfitter, take appropriate precautions; these rapids may be relatively calm, but that doesn’t mean they’re harmless.
