Whitewater Rafting in Michigan
With a MA and a PhD in Jewish Studies from Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Yaron Eliav is an associate professor of Rabbinic Literature and Jewish History of Late Antiquity in the department of Near Eastern studies at the University of Michigan. Outside of his academic work in Judaic Studies, Yaron Eliav enjoys whitewater rafting.
Michigan offers several options for adventurers seekers whitewater rafting opportunities. Listed below are three companies that offer group and solo rafting trips:
1. Northwoods Adventures: Located in Iron Mountain, Michigan, Northwood takes rafters through beautiful scenery and difficult rapids, and prides itself on its great hospitality.
2. Gallup River Rafting: This Ann Arbor-based company recently added manmade rapids to its course, offering participants a taste of whitewater rafting without overwhelming them
3. Bear River Whitewater Park: Located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Bear River runs through the city of Petosky. The water here is different each season, offering rafters a unique excursion on every visit. This local Northern Michigan community removed all dams and other debris from the river, allowing it to flow in its original course.
