Steeped in pioneer history, the wild Rogue River rushes and roars through some of North America’s most spectacular scenery. This three-day raft the Rogue trip combines the beauty and tranquility of this remote region with thrilling whitewater adventure for a truly invigorating experience!
America’s wild north-west is a paradise for lovers of the very great outdoors! Between them, Northern California and Oregon are home to every imaginable landscape, from lush rainforest to barren desert, sweeping beaches to lofty mountains. The raw beauty of the environment is matched only by its sheer immensity; among the superlative sites are Crater Lake (the deepest in the U.S.), the Columbia river (one of the largest in North America) and Mount Hood (one of the States’ most prominent peaks). There are towering Douglas Firs and redwoods (the world’s biggest trees) and, to trump them all, the world’s largest single organism, the 600 ton, 2,400 year old Armillaria ostoyae fungus beneath the Malheur National Forest! Given this awesome setting, it should come as no surprise to learn that the region features some of the best hiking, mountaineering and, most importantly, the best rafting that America has to offer!
This three- or four-day raft the Rogue trip takes you to the heart of this wild landscape! Starting in the 2 hours west of Crater Lake,you’ll head through the Coastal Range, a region rich in frontier lore. Look out for abandoned homesteads and wilderness lodges as you drift through the rugged Siskiyou Mountains, an area overflowing with fantastic whitewater. The rapids on the Rogue make for some great rafting that’s both thrilling and safe. On top of this there are countless swimming holes, waterfalls and rock jumps to explore. Best of all is the feeling of total freedom as you drift downstream through these historic wilds, the majestic backdrop for what is rightly considered one of America’s most iconic rafting routes.
There are over 80 rapids on the river and you can choose to navigate these in relaxed oar boats (with a guide + 2 - 6 paddlers) or for a bit more of a thrill, go solo in an inflatable kayak.
The Rogue River has something for everyone. There are churning, Class IV rapids for the thrill-seekers, gentler whitewater for families and beginners. Your choice of craft also has a big impact on the adrenalin levels; oar boats give you a relaxed passage, paddle boats make for a bit more hands-on excitement, while inflatable kayaks guarantee an exhilarating rollercoaster ride! You don’t need any experience to try this tour, but it helps if you’re an adventurous, open-minded type. And of course, you’ll be spending several hours a day in the raft with a bunch of other people, so if you’re not one for socialising best pick another tour. Having said that, the maximum group size is 10 - 12 people, so you will still be able to experience the peace of the river. One final caution: you will get wet!
The number of people allowed on the river each season is regulated, so with this one it is worth booking up in advance.
The Rogue River is for everyone!!! This is one of the best multi-day river trips in the country and I have done them all! A little something for everyone with its exciting rapids, beautiful scenery, abundant wildlife, and historic past. I took my mother on her 50th birthday. She had never been rafting before and she absolutely loved it!
Momentum does an amazing job! I have done many trips with them and this is by far one of the best!!! You won't be sorry!
