What an amazing day of rafting!! Our guide Jordan was the best! The whole organization was very well run from the time we arrived, until we left. The guides were all great with the whole group. I would definitely recommend this as a must do!

Not an answer, but...I would call or email Viking direct. They (locals) would have the best list of options. I would book sooner than later. Vacant rooms can be hard to find. Instead of "choosing" a hotel you'll be searching... More
