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.
