Franklin River Rafting
Franklin River Rafting offer white water rafting tours on the Franklin River, in Western Tasmania.
The Franklin River is one of the last truly wild rivers on Earth. A complex system of breathtaking scenery, powerful energy and moments of utter tranquillity. Threading its way through Tasmania's unique World Heritage Area, there are few environments in the world as ancient, untouched or majestic as the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park.
Franklin River Rafting is a company that specialises in unique, uninterrupted eight-day and ten-day white water rafting tours that challenge and reward our guests as we explore the river and its pristine ecosystem.
Owned and operated by the guides that will be taking you down the river, Elias, Franzi and their friends will provide an unparalleled experience based on their intimate knowledge and love of the Franklin River. Join us on a personalised journey of a lifetime down one of the most beautiful, inspiring and isolated rivers in the world.
Tours depart from Hobart central business district.
