Rappelling is a huge chunk of their business. Because their core philosophy is “Safety First”, they’ll start you off on easy rappels. Once they’ve certified your competence in rappelling the real fun starts. Waterfall rappelling is an amazingly fun activity and perfect way to cool off in the hot summer.

Perhaps you’re not up for the exhilaration of rock climbing or rappelling. That’s ok, because Thrifty Adventures also offer Kayaking, White Water Kayaking, river tubing and other relaxing activities. These are perfect for relaxing in the sun while gently floating down the river. Some rivers are so gentle you can plop a cooler on a spare tube and drink some beers while calmly floating away your worries and stress.
