No matter what O.R.E. trip you take you will find that our guides enjoy sharing their knowledge of the river with you. By trip's end you've had a fun and rejuvenating vacation, and you may find you've learned a thing or two along the way.
We also offer a series of river trips - run in cooperation with Road Scholar - which offer even greater opportunities for learning.
Road Scholar is the nation's first and the world's largest educational and travel organization for adults. It serves nearly 170,000 program attendees each year, four times larger than all other not-for-profit educational travel providers combined. Road Scholar offers nearly 8,000 educational programs on a vast array of subjects, in over 100 countries. O.R.E. is Road Scholar’s most experienced rafting outfitter. We run more Road Scholar whitewater river trips – and more Road Scholar wilderness river trips – than does any other company or institution, world-wide.
On an Road Scholar river trip our guides (joined in some cases by guest instructors) will introduce you to a variety of regional topics, which may range from river safety to botany, from river morphology and dynamics to Native American mythology, and from whitewater paddling techniques to gold rush history.
Our trips focus on experiential learning, and for this reason we encourage each participant to get as involved with each day's activities as their interest and abilities dictate. Join a paddle raft team, try out an inflatable kayak, or help us set up an environmentally friendly river camp: our guides will be happy to share their skills and knowledge with you.
To enroll in an O.R.E. Road Scholar trip you will need to contact them directly. You may reach them by phone toll-free at: 1-877-426-8056, or on the web at roadscholar.org.
