Concord River Whitewater Rafting

Every spring, the rapids and waterfalls that once brought the textile industry to Lowell power one of the most interesting raft trips in the United States. When you journey down the class 3 and 4 rapids through the green heart of this revitalized city, you’ll be following the route that Henry David Thoreau portaged in the 1800’s. In addition to exciting rapids, expect great blue herons overhead, ancient rock outcroppings on the riverside and elegant stone arch bridges along the way. Your trip concludes with passage through an 1850’s lock chamber that brings you right into the center of Lowell, Massachusetts.
