Stalking the Snake

Herald and News | August, 2018
"Slithering along the Snake is journey that includes rumble-tumble rapids and sublime stretches of luscious scenery in North America’s deepest gorge. There are hikes to a scenic river overlook, a preserved riverside farm, Indian pictographs, a historical embarrassment and once-upon-a-time homesteads and mines. The Hells Canyon stretch is only a portion of the 1,078-mile long river — the longest tributary of the Columbia River — that begins in Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming and ends in the Columbia near the tri-cities in Washington."

Wilderness Dream on Idaho's Middle Fork Salmon

Wine Dine & Travel | August, 2018

"The Middle Fork of the Salmon, of of the nation's top whitewater streams, tumbles through the River of No Return Wilderness in central Idaho, dropping more than 3,000 feet over 105 miles. That ominous and poetic name for the wilderness notwithstanding, I keep coming back to this stunning waterway in the Sawtooth Range every five years or so to kayak it's 100-plus mellow-to-challenging rapids, soak in its stream-side thermal pools, hike trails that ascend into the hills above the river and enjoy the beauty of its canyon." - Brian Clark

Want to See the Wild Side of Cuba? Try a Kayak

The New York Times | June, 2018

NYT travel writer Eric Hiss joined Cuba Unbound on our 8-day Signature Tour and discovered Western Cuba through its coasts and rivers. Cuba is a wild world beyond social media ready #wanderlust panoramas—a world where Crocodiles snap, salsa beats bounce across moonlit oceans, and flocks of 200 flamingos take flight in a kite of color. Away from the classic car show of flashing chrome, cigar shops and cabaret shows lies a pristine world of salt flats and mangrove-lined marshes, blue coastlines and misty lagoons.

7 Truly Epic Trips for Deeply Adventurous Travelers

AFAR Magazine | June, 2018

"Fifty years ago, when the Rogue River became one of eight rivers in the United States protected by the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, the surrounding rugged, complex canyon landscape in southwestern Oregon was protected, too. ROW Adventures makes the region accessible to voyagers of all levels with three- or four-day rafting excursions that don’t even require you to sleep in a tent. Splash through white water during the day and unwind at riverside inns every night." - AFAR Magazine

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."
