Whitewater Rafting

Iron Mountain homes for sale have convenient access to the Menominee and Peshtigo Rivers, with large-volume rapids that provide opportunities for world-class whitewater rafting. When our real estate agents hear the call of the outdoors, they turn to these companies for some unforgettable adventures.

  • Wildman Adventure Resort - N22200 Bomber Rd., Niagara, WI 54151
    True to its name, Wildman Adventure Resort offers whitewater rafting trips where you can truly let loose. First enjoy swimming and games in a scenic flat water section before braving two runs through the class IV rapids. The family-friendly trip is appropriate for ages 5 and up, but upgrades are available for more experienced rafters or Boy Scouts seeking their Whitewater Rafting award. Menominee River trips depart at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m., while Peshtigo River trips leave at 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., just minutes from Niagara homes for sale. Rafting trips run from two to four hours long.

  • True North Outpost - W5768 Old Piers Gorge Rd., Norway, MI 49870
    Whatever your skill level, you'll find an exciting whitewater rafting challenge from True North Outpost. In partnership with Northwoods Adventures, not far from Norway homes for sale, True North offers three different trips on the Menominee River. The three-hour public raft outing features a pass through the Terminal Surfer rapids, for anyone who wants to hit the waves. Half-day private trips accommodate up to seven people (more upon request), while the two-day mini-excursions include a night of camping for a total outdoor experience. Minimum ages are 4 years old for flat water and 12 years old for class IV rapids.

  • Thornton's Rafting Resort & Campgrounds - W 12882 Parkway Rd., Athelstane, WI 54104
    Variety is the spice of life at Thornton's Rafting Resort & Campgrounds, which has a range of outdoor activities within easy distance from Athelstane homes for sale. Whitewater rafting trips are provided in partnership with Wildman Adventure Resort. If you want a more relaxing excursion on the water, enjoy a scenic kayak trip on Caldron Falls Lake. Those who prefer dry land action can compete in a lively game of paintball. Tent or RV camping is available on grounds that feature ATV/UTV trails, or you can choose one of the cozy, fully furnished cabins. 

  • Kosir's Whitewater Rafting - W7010 US Hwy. 8 E, Niagara, WI 54151
    For more than 40 years, Kosir's Whitewater Rafting has been leading adventure seekers on amazing trips. Kosir's was the first professional whitewater rafting outfitter in Wisconsin with outposts on both the Peshtigo and Menominee Rivers. Many rafting newcomers have had their first experience through Kosir's trips, and they keep coming back thanks to the friendly, experienced guides. Kosir's also offers kayaking on the Peshtigo River that's perfect for family groups or a romantic date for two. Their sit-on-top, flat water kayaks accommodate paddlers of any skill level. 

  • Tarka's Whitewater Journey - W6046 Piers Gorge Rd., Norway, MI 49870
    When it comes to rafting on the Menominee River, the Piers Gorge section gets all the headlines. Tarka's Whitewater Journey leads rafting trips on the Lower Menominee River, which has a wonderful appeal of its own. As the river passes through heavily wooded and undeveloped land, you'll feel a true sense of tranquility. The two-hour run ends at Quiver Falls.
