Oregon offers innumerable opportunities for adventurous rafting. From steep mountain creeks to desert canyons and lush scenic gorges, Oregon has something for every taste and ability. Since 1979, ROW Adventures has guided rafting trips and you can count on our experienced guides for exceptional service. With its hallmark stretch of water, the Rogue River has adrenaline-pumping drops, peaceful pools and idyllic scenery, this iconic Oregon river is a must-do destination for rafting trips. Of course, you could also skip the raft and opt for a different type of paddle. The Owyhee is also an incredible destination for your wilderness kayak vacation, where ROW Adventure guides take you through scenic, protected areas where wildlife is plentiful, water is clear and the adventure is on every river bend. Bottom line, Oregon is a state meant for wild and scenic whitewater rafting trips.

Oregon is Home to World-Famous Rapids

The rapids on Oregon rivers make for a perfect adventure for your family. Most of the rivers we raft in Oregon accommodate any experience level, whether beginner or intermediate, so all can enjoy the whitewater excitement. This magnificent state plays home to famous rapids like Rainie Falls, Blossom Bar on the Rogue and Wild Sheep and Granite on the Snake -- all making the adrenaline fueled trip absolutely unforgettable.

Lodge to Lodge River

Oregon has one of the only "lodge to lodge" rafting rivers on the country and we are lucky enough to own one of the few permits that allow us to provide this once-in-a-lifetime experience. These trips give guests the best of both worlds - outdoor rafting fun during the day and comfort of a lodge at night. The lodges are basic but comfortable, set in remote wilderness near the river. As the sun shines down on the Rogue River you are surrounded by the untamed natural beauty Southwestern Oregon. The Rogue winds down from the awe-inspiring Cascades and makes its way down to the rough, untarnished coastline. This tour takes you on over 40 miles of the best parts of the Rogue.
