River rafting is one of the world’s most invigorating adventures. Rivers are magical, braids of water where time stands still and rushes by all in one moment. Quite literally, we submit ourselves to the life force of nature. We call it Riverspeed, and it’s our little secret. This adventure starts in a helicopter where we explore mountain peaks and snowy glaciers on our way to the headwaters of the mighty Elaho River. Guides and gear are waiting at the water’s edge, you’ve shifted gears completely, falling into the rhythm, pace and beauty of Riverspeed.
