Culinary Whitewater Series, United States
Culinary Whitewater Series:
ROW Adventures is excited to celebrate a tradition of cooking adventures! We offer several trips in our "Culinary Whitewater Rafting Series." On some trips we have a guest chef who accompanies the trip and prepares gourmet meals paired with their choice of fine regional wines. On other trips, we combine hands-on learning of campfire and Dutch Oven cooking focused on Northwest Regional Fare. Participants will be taught by ROW Adventures' talented guide staff and, sometimes, an additional skilled chef, to learn how to prepare gourmet meals in the wilderness. These skills include provisioning, packing coolers, the use of propane stoves, the art of Dutch Oven cooking and more! The skills learned can be used in for backyard cooking, on car camping trips, or other outdoor scenarios.
Dutch ovens have long been used in the West. Lewis and Clark, sourdoughs of gold rush days and pioneers on the Oregon Trail all depended on these versatile cooking pots that allow a person to bake just about anything. Participants in our cooking adventure will learn all the tricks of Dutch Oven cooking with a focus on regional Northwest fare such as wild salmon, Pacific oysters, huckleberries, Idaho potatoes, mushrooms, apples and other fresh seasonal fruit, etc.
Meals will be paired with Oregon, Washington and Idaho wines along with tasting notes of each featured wine.
All participants receive a complimentary and handsome ROW apron to take home!
Both The New York Times and Every Day with Rachael Ray have featured our culinary whitewater adventures!

SCOTCH AND (white)WATER™ -
Middle Fork of the Salmon, Idaho - September 18, 2013
Price for the six-day, five-night trip is $1990/person
What better mixer for your favorite single malt whiskey than the whitewater of Idaho's gin-clear Middle Fork of the Salmon. We've taken a classic wilderness rafting trip and added whiskey tasting to each day's ritual. Around the evening campfire, as eyes look up to star-studded skies, noses will focus on wafts of whiskey. We'll share notes and flavors sure to forge a deep bond among fellow tasters and adventurers. Don Poffenroth of the northwest's own Dry Fly Distillery will accompany the trip to teach about the making of single malts and their special lure.
Over the course of six days, you raft 80 miles through the heart of the Rocky Mountains in the largest designated Wilderness Area in the lower 48 states. Starting around 5000' above sea level and dropping 2000' during the trip, dozens of fun class III-IV rapids add spice to each day. There's also walks to Indian rock art sites, pioneer homesteads and places of natural wonder such as the magical cavern beneath Veil Falls. Paddlers choose to ride in oar-powered rafts, paddle rafts or their own inflatable kayak. Adding yet another dimension to the trip is the blue-ribbon cutthroat trout fishery and fly fishing enthusiasts will find plenty of action fishing from rafts or on shore. No experience in either whitewater or whiskey is required.
A camp boat travels ahead to set up camp and kitchen. Wines from Idaho, Oregon, Montana and Washington Bountiful, are paired with each evening's riverside dinners that features fresh, bountiful Northwest cuisine. After the evening's tasting they'll also be the chance to soak in a wilderness hot spring at least one night during the journey.
Fun whitewater, spectacular scenery, superb fishing, great food and wine, topped off with single malts and friends promises to be the perfect mix.
