SALT LAKE CITY, UT — The 2021 river rafting season clock is ticking. Western River Expeditions reports that it is seeing a record number of travelers selecting overnight rafting trips as the vacation of choice this summer.

This company is in the enviable position of drawing people to wilderness destinations where experiences are authentic and meaningful.

WWR1“Due to the events of the past year, people are looking for more meaningful travel. More than ever before, our customers are seeking vacation experiences that provide a deeper way to connect with loved ones and share new experiences. They want to be in remote places that truly inspire and provide a complete escape from daily life,” said Brandon Lake, co-owner of Western River Expeditions.

As so many people in the world share this need, Western River Expeditions crafted a new video campaign featuring several videos that express the feelings that so many are seeking right now.

“Our new video series relays the sense of excitement, of awe, of tranquility, of discovering life-changing experiences and more meaningful vacations. You can’t come on the river and remain unchanged,” underscored Lake.

Those still in search of the perfect adventure this summer can check out the rush, awe, tranquility, and connection that await on some trips that are still available.

We are continuing to communicate and follow all of our COVID-19 protocols and procedures until they are no longer necessary. Our guests appreciate that and find additional comfort in spending the majority of their vacation in the great outdoors as we make our way down the river through a pristine natural environment,” said Lake.
