Our class 4 trips can be best described as... exciting rapids, amazing scenery and pristine wilderness. You don't need to have paddling experience but everyone needs to be in good athletic shape and have swimming ability.
We run our class 4 trips as private charters... with just your group of paddlers in each raft. Our private charters require at least 4 persons to book. We require you to fill your raft(s) with 4 to 6 persons per raft.
2019 Projections - The class 4 North Fork American River will run from late April to early June in 2019. The class 4 & 5 North Yuba will be raftable from early May through late June. The class 3 and 4 Middle Fork American River will be too low to raft until mid July but is an excellent choice for an adventurous trip July through September.
Beyond Limits' most experienced guides conduct our Class 4 trips daily. If you have a guide request please feel free to include this on your online reservation.
