The Destination
El Dorado County offers adventure around every corner, from the rapids of the American River to the wineries that dot the Gold Country landscape. And nobody knows that better than Adventure Connection, boasting more than 30 years of experience leading trips through the white water of wine country. On the two-day Red Wine and Whitewater Rafting Trip—the only professionally led excursion of its kind in California, and lauded as one of the West's Most Unique Rafting Trips by Sunset magazine—you'll join a small group and experienced guides for an exhilarating taste of the action.

The Digs
Bring your own tent, sleeping bag, and sleeping pad for a night under the stars (or rent camping gear, available from Adventure Connection). And this is hardly roughing it: The riverside campsite features a volleyball court and horseshoe pit, a camp store and campfire pit, hot showers, and flush toilets. You'll also be treated to four delicious meals during the expedition.

The Diversions
Trips begin at 9 a.m. on Thursdays and Saturdays. On the wine day, adventurers will ready their palates for tastings at local award-winning wineries. The trip is chauffeured and begins with two to three tastings in the morning. Then, you'll break for lunch and hit two to four more wineries in the afternoon. Depending on the timing and preference of individual groups, you might even visit a local microbrewery.

The river day includes a brief orientation and guide introduction, and then it's off to paddle between 11 and 13 miles of Class III rapids, hitting the heavier rapids on the lower section of the Chili Bar run in the morning and early afternoon—perfect for beginner and intermediate paddlers alike. After a day on the river, you'll head back for a late lunch at the campsite to relax and refuel—and share all the tales of derring-do from the day's adventure with your fellow crewmates.
