Kern River rafting adventures became possible for everyone when Kern River Tours established the first whitewater rafting company on the Kern River in 1974. Since that time we have served thousands of guests, from many areas, who return time again to raft the world-class rapids of the Kern.
Why visit the Kern River Valley?
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 KRT rafting trip at the center.
