ROW Adventures Middle Fork of the Salmon River

Idaho White Water Rafting Where Smartphones Cannot Reach You

Frommer's | February, 2017

"Not many places in the U.S.A., much less the world, offer an epic outdoor adventure that doubles as a digital detox quite like the Middle Fork of the Salmon River. Even in the Himalayas of Nepal you can still get Wi-Fi. For me, this adrenaline-charged adventure, which came with no possibility of digital distraction, kept me tethered to the moment as I explored one of Mother Nature’s most spectacular rivers."

Huffington Post | October, 2016

"I was in Cuba for ROW Adventure’s seven-day people-to-people kayaking trip, one of the first trips of its kind since President Obama re-established diplomatic relations with Cuba last year....On our first day, we paddled for a couple of hours around the shallow bay in the late afternoon. There was nobody else on the water. Not a boat or kayak other than our own, just the birds and the wind."

Wild Life: Exploring the Other-Worldly Islands of Ecuador's Galapagos Archipelago by Kayak

Canoe & Kayak | September, 2016

"Imagine paddling off the coast of an island in the Pacific Ocean. To your right is a long, sandy beach with a bare volcano rising behind it. To your left lies endless ocean dotted with more small islands. A light breeze blows across the water. A sea turtle pops its head up next to your boat for a breath. A few minutes later, a dolphin jumps in the air just yards from the bow of your kayak. You paddle by a bait ball of sardines and a hammerhead shark rips past you, splitting the school of fish in two. This is the Galápagos archipelago, a place so teeming with wildlife that encounters like these are the norm...."

What it's Like to Kayak with Orcas

Vogue | August, 2016

"Time stops in British Columbia’s Inside Passage: Stretching from the northwestern edge of Washington State and extending into southeast Alaska, this coastal route weaves through thick wilderness where a day at sea includes roaming free with humpback whales and orcas. Towering trees stand erect against the haze of ambient cloud streams, and you can feel a steady, internal shift accruing, cementing a lineal connection to nature this landscape provides...."

Rafting Rogue River Southern Oregon Row Adventures | August, 2016

"Nothing says family vacation like a rafting trip on the river. My husband and I met at the University of Oregon and sealed our relationship when we purchased a tent together. That was thirty years ago. While we still camp under the stars, this trip was a four day, Lodge to Lodge rafting trip on the Rogue River with Row Adventures. An adventure travel company since 1979, Row river guides know the wild and scenic Rogue River as well as Huck Finn claimed to know the Mississippi River.

Cuba Tours Hike, Bike, and Kayak to Actively Connect with Culture | August, 2016

"ROW Adventures, based in Coeur d’Alene, has led active adventure travel trips from the Spokane River to the Galapagos Islands and Africa for 37 years. But owner Peter Grubb said he’s amazed with the company’s newest frontier. 'Cuba offers a cultural experience that blends well with an active vacation,' Grubb said. Four years ago, his company started exploring the potential for walking trips through the island nation’s national parks and sea kayaking trips on its Caribbean coasts. 'The Cuban people really want us there, and that’s a good start to any trip.'"
