Minnesota climbing and rafting special.

Here’s your perfect adventure filled day – sign up for a Rafting and Climbing day with Hard Water Sports.
Thursdays all summer long.

The Whitewater Paddling

Your day starts with a whitewater tour of the Kettle River. The 3 hour adventure tour takes you through the hart of Banning State Park and includes the Hell’s Gate rapis and Dragon’s Tooth. We make a stop at Wolf Creek Falls and take the time to swim in the river. This is a guided tour.

Please note that the Kettle River is free flowing and the river level is not controled by dams. The river goes up and down with the rain.
The river level goes up and down with the rain – we cannot control the rain.
Depending on the river level your tour maybe in a raft or an inflatable kayak. We do our best to make your adventure safe and fun.
