No previous white water rafting experience is necessary. But please be aware that rafting in this untamed, remote wilderness does require a medium fitness level and a sense of adventure.

The minimum age is 16 or lower by arrangement. There is no maximum age limit. Several people in their seventies have successfully completed Franklin River Rafting ™ trips.

Negotiating the untamed waters of the Franklin River is one of the worlds best whitewater rafting adventures. Unpredictable river levels mean your trip will always be an adventure – it is possible to encounter both very low levels and floods within days of each other. Whatever the level, rafts offer the best way to explore this unique wilderness.

We may be able to customize the length and start date of your Franklin River Rafting ™ tour if you have a group of four or more.  We can and have run Full River expeditions of 6 to 14 days, Upper River tours of 4 to 8 days and Lower River trips of 4 to 6 days duration.

Please enquire regarding discounts for groups of three or more. Contact 1800-1111-42 BRETT

“Water by Nature Rafting the Franklin” It was Remote, it was Rugged, it was Risky, it was RAW. The 7 days rafting the Franklin ripped me from my comfort zone and threw me to my edge. I spent 6 days water logged, ate like a king, paddled my butt off and mastered the art of the freezer bag drop.

I feel privileged to have experienced 7 days of natural beauty and isolation in this world heritage listed wilderness and am indebted to Brett and Klaudia for sacrificing an easy, low risk life to take me there and look after me. I was a member of a great team of 7 others apart from the 2 guides and we had such a fun time. Lastly, thank you Dr Bob Brown for your untiring commitment to keeping the Franklin as Mother Earth intends it to be.
