Grande Ronde River Rafting

The Grande Ronde river trip cuts its way through deep river canyons creating stunning scenery, beautiful campsites and a mild, but fun ride for everyone.  Tucked in the NE corner of the state, it’s a river that is little known, despite its great fishing and wildlife viewing opportunities.  This is a great trip for families and for those who are looking for a “milder” ride.

  • Travel on two rivers the Wallowa and Grande Ronde, with postcard worthy riverside campsites.
  • Fun class II+ rapids great for a family or to learn how to inflatable kayak on.
  • Great fishing opportunities and a huge range of wildlife.
