Considered to be on the "mild" side, but with rapids full of bouncy wave trains and water shooting off of roostertails, it still provides plenty of excitement for everyone.  With its swift current and crystal clear waters coming from the near by Wallowa mountains the Grande Ronde River is perfect for the chance to enjoy some whitewater, but still be ready for your riverside yoga.

A Grande Ronde River Rafting trip is a hidden gem for Oregon white water, tucked in the NE corner of the state.  The river trip cuts its way through a deep canyon creating stunning scenery, full of pines, wildlife and classic riverside campsites.

"The experience was the highlight trip of my summer. I had been "making" it down the river, but that's it. I felt like I was kayaking a bunch, but reached a point that I wasn't getting any better. The instruction I received from your great group of instructors has been so helpful. They gave me so many techniques/paddle strokes to work on and they helped me with the bad habits I had developed. There wasn't a single instructor that I didn't think was great and enjoyable to be around, both on and off the water." - Angela Warder, Olympia, WA
