Grande Ronde River Rafting


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.

A Grande Ronde rafting trip is 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 your families next river rafting trip.

  • 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.


Thank you for your interest in Oregon River Experiences. We hope you are doing well and have been safe through this ordeal.  It is with a heavy heart we have made the difficult decision to suspend our 2020 season operations due to the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 virus. We did not do this lightly, but for the safety and concern of you, our clients, family, and friends.

We think of a river trip as a way to escape into something different from your everyday life, and with the precautions required and changes to ensure your safety, we felt that the special river experience was not going to be the same. 

We will be operating in 2021 stronger than ever and will have the multiday schedule available by July 1st, 2020.  We appreciate your support during these times and wish you a safe and fun-filled summer this year.

In the meantime, if you have questions regarding a trip with us for the 2021 season or need a recommendation for this season, please contact us at (on the website, will be link directly into contact form).  If you want to call us at 503-563-1500 feel free, but we might be outside enjoying our summer.  Say hello if you see us out and about by your favorite river.

See you on the water in 2021,

The Oregon River Experiences Team
