ROGUE RIVER RAFTING TRIPS

The Rogue River is rich with history, beauty, and drama.

WILD & SCENIC TRIPS

The Rogue River is rich with history, beauty, and drama. Long considered to be one of the world’s classic rivers, it is home to a vast array of wildlife — and whitewater — from tranquil riffles to the thunder of Rainie Falls.

Tumbling from the Cascade Mountains near Crater Lake in southern Oregon, the Rogue winds through the dramatic rocky gorges of the Siskiyou National Forest. It was one of the original eight rivers protected as a National Wild and Scenic River by Congress in 1968 (the Klamath River was added in 1981). A river paradise, the canyon is accessible only on foot or by boat.

Trips are available in May and September thru early November. In the Fall, we have the option of staying in one of the beautiful lodges hidden deep in the Rogue Canyon.
