Trip Info

This half-day guided rafting float trip on the Deerfield River is the perfect active recreation to add to your family vacation in New England or to create an adventure getaway with your kids. With a minimum age of 5 allowed on our Zoar family float trips, you can show your children the fun and thrill of rafting as they learn to paddle, perhaps for the first time.

Our family rafting trips showcase the beauty of the lower Deerfield River as it meanders through farmland and the rolling Berkshire foothills along the historic Mohawk Trail. Our professional river guides provide insight into the natural and cultural history of the area. 

With opportunities to swim and splash in the waters of the Deerfield, this trip provides a wonderful afternoon adventure for families, scout and camp groups.

Float Trips meet at 3:30 pm and usually finish by 7:00 pm. We stop along the way for a light dinner served riverside, often on Skip Rock Island. 


"It was tons of fun! We had ages 6 to 33 and everyone loved it, even my teenage daughter." - Alicia

"Our son is just now old enough to go out on adventure tour activities (5 years) and the Zoar float trip was a great place to start. Just enough excitement, a great and entertaining guide, dinner included and an unbelievable sunset. We also brought along some teenage friends who also found the trip enjoyable. Looking forward to going back and may be next time tackling the upper river without little ones in tow." - momonabicycle

"What a nice way to create family memories. I would recommend the Family Float to others, especially those with young children." - Michele
