"My son and I did the half-day trip. It was one of the highlights of vising the Portland area. You have to drive the 40 miles from Portland to the launch, but the drive is through some of the most beautiful country. The staff are second-to-none in kindness and cooperative leadership. I would recommend this group to anyone who enjoys the outdoors. I would especially recommend ORE if you're looking for an activity that's outside of Portland to balance the urban experience."

"I have gone on nine trips on four different rivers with ORE during the last 10 years. Expert guides who were obviously enjoying the trip too, great food mostly made from scratch. Everyone got to ride, paddle boat, or kayak as they chose. We laughed a whole lot, too."

I was fortunate to experience my first real rafting trip with Oregon River Experiences. From beginning to end it was a fantastic experience. The guides were fun, professional, and exceptionally skilled. I would recommend this company to anyone and everyone. The rafting trip CHANGED MY LIFE. It was absolutely 100% incredible.

Joel and his team did an incredible job taking our group of 13 out to the Clackamas a couple of weeks ago! Joel drove all the way into the northwest side of Portland and picked us up, drove us to the site and we were off...once we finished up, we stopped at a nearby food truck and a local brewery. The prices are extremely reasonable and it was a perfect day getting out and enjoying the Clackamas River. I would highly recommend!!!- Drew T.
