We stay at Thorntons in a two bedroom cabin and had a fantastic time. The workers are great and we had a blast whitewater rafting. We've already recommended Thorntons to friends and will definitely be back!

This was our first experience whitewater rafting. We were not disappointed here. It was very easy to book. It was pricier than some other trips we looked at, but we thought it was worth it. You have a guide with you at all times and,...More
