Why Go On A River Trip?

Rivers flow through some of the most majestic landscapes of the world and are a natural pathway to places that can be otherwise difficult to access.  As outfitters and guides, we provide access to those that may not have the equipment, skills and expertise to experience a river.  Some rivers require technical whitewater skill in addition to the other logistical aspects.

The River

Running rivers makes you feel that every time you have a clean run, it is by the grace of a more powerful force and at anytime, something different could happen and surprise you.

My First Time on the Lochsa

As an intern for ROW Adventures, I was excited to hear that part of the learning experience would be getting out on the river and going on trips to “understand” the product. How could I complain? Spending time on the water, enjoying nature, and building friendships with guides and guests alike is what I love best.

#Causes: The Primary Source - Running the Río Marañón

I was sick; really sick. The kind of sick many people experience when traveling overseas, where your guts feel like there is something living inside them. Tom and I were on an eight hour van ride from Huaraz to Puente Copuma with two other class V kayakers to run the Upper and Inner Gorges of the Río Marañón in Perú, possibly the biggest whitewater I had ever seen.
