In 1974, Kern River Tours became the first commercial rafting company on the Kern River, and our experience shows in our total operation.
Kern River Tours is non-discriminatory. Operated in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service (Sequoia Forest) and Bureau of Land Management.
The Kern River Valley is an amazing vacation for the whole family. After getting off the river, rafters also enjoy the natural beauty of the area and other outdoor activities. The area offers great camping, hiking, bicycling and the giant sequoia groves nearby. Our western-theme communities feature lodging, dining and shopping in a wide price range for every budget. Imagine a weekend of fun, relaxation and adventure, with a KRTrafting trip at the center.
